Beautiful Fall

We have had a beautiful fall here is Seward to play golf and enjoy our colorful trees and shrubs. This Maple at the corner of 3rd and Roberts is always fantastic this time of year. But we have others in the area that are equally outstanding. We just don't have the masses of color like the Aspens in Colorado nor the Maples in New England that are native to their areas. Here in Nebraska our colorful trees are the result of a partnership between nature and someone who planted and nurtured a tree. Nebraska is known as, "The Tree Planter's State" and the home of the National Arbor Day Foundation. We also have the Halsey National Forest in Nebraska which is the only National Forest in the Country that was planted by man. It has been a great fall but it just reached 50 degrees for a high today and the forecast is for freezing temperatures within the next couple days. It was great while it lasted.
