GR Reporter Staff Report

Driving around town and country is a delight with fall colors popping out all over. Red oaks flame up from the dark green cedar-covered hills, sumac puts on a brilliant show of hot pink and red and the tall elms along the Paluxy River look like they've been dipped in gold. Merchants put out pumpkins and Thanksgiving-themed displays and a cluster of fall crocus glowed on Vernon Street.
