The bay area is not exactly known for fall color and that’s what makes this entry drive so striking. Most of the trees around here are evergreen. And then here is a matched pair of maples, intentionally smaller than the other trees, so that they are in proportion to the gate, and more importantly so that they turn blazing, glowing red in the fall against a quiet backdrop of greens. You could get whiplash driving by this house. I finally took a picture after all these years so I could stop obsessing about it.
