A late fall



There were a number of reasons my parents came over from the UK at the time they did, and one of the minor ones was certainly that they might get a chance to see some of the fall colors, that is, autumn colours.
Unfortunately, they didn't count on our weather this year. Now, we did have a freeze last week: two or three in fact. And when I say freeze, I do mean that it reached 31 F. Finally the maple tree in our front yard has started to turn. Unfortunately for the tree, it is in for a surprise. We are getting back up into the mid-to-upper 70's next week. Still, for now, some nice beginnings of turnings of leaves.

Yours, as confused as the trees,
N.

Isn't this just crazy? Up until a week and a half ago, I had not turned on my furnace. Very odd for my neck of the woods. I hope this doesn't mean mountains of snow...

Hello from Michelle.

Wow, a maple tree in the garden! Sounds fab. I love the colour maple leaves go in the autumn, they're stunning.

The weather certainly seems to be going up and down like a see-saw there. Strange. Is it normally like that?

The fall trees are certainly a highlight.

This year we are having early winters. Colder mornings and nights.

Blame it on Global warming?

Michele sent me here to discuss the weather!

Weather is just as screwy here in Los Angeles.... 80* one week, 67* the next! Love the leafy color.

Michele says hello!

Not to toot my own horn, but I've got several good pictures on my blog. Autumn, of course. Stop by.
