Last year about this time, I took a stroll uptown in Martinsville city and noted all the trees there along the streets, with fall colors being slightly behind the rest of the area (peak color). I suspect that’s because it’s warmer in the city than it is outside in the county. So, I decided to go see what I could see this year. I was not disappointed. What I did slightly different this year than last, however, was to focus more on colorful “things” beyond just the trees. So, this week, day-by-day, I will be posting some of my work in this regard.

Walking uptown in Martinsville can be depressing because it’s a far cry from what it once was. This city was a hub for major textile and furniture manufacturing for a long time. Prior to the growth of Northern Virginia and all it’s government-oriented industry, it was Southern Virginia that provided a large portion of revenues for the commonwealth. No matter, I love living here!
