These days are passing by in a whirl, marked by scribbles on the calendar on where we were and what we were doing …
We were having nice sunny skies, and somewhat warm temperatures …Here’s a tree that I spied as we were waiting for the traffic light to change. I managed to get a shot in before the car started moving again. I like the way the trunk curves, and the branches fan out.
A few days later, we were driving in fog and mist. It was so low that it covered the tops of the buildings …
… and the top of the bridge structure. That’s the bottom frame/structure that you see in the distance, as we take the ramp to get on the bridge.
And this is what it looked like today … the snow, ice, sleet was starting to come down, and you couldn’t see the bridge structure at all …
Fog and mist seems to be our weather pattern this year … some weeks ago, we were in the middle of a sod farm that was covered in fog and mist, as the boys played their games … And many say that this is going to be a bad winter in the northeast this year … So maybe we’ll get a white Christmas this year?
After the flurries yesterday, we are bathed in bright sunshine today. Still cold, but the sun is out.
And as I stepped out today, this is what I was greeted with. A red carpet for me!
All these leaves fell overnight. I thought that it would last till the weekend, so that I can take more photos of it. I haven’t even gone through the photos I took of the leaves last week, and now it’s in full red bloom and leaves are almost gone with the winds.
We woke up to freezing cold weather … and flurries!
But it’s only November!! Is this a preview what our winter would be like? You can’t really see the flurries in the picture, they were really small ones, and didn’t stick, but they were there.
Meanwhile, the maple tree in the front yard is in full colour bloom. When we first moved in, it was about three feet shorter, and changed colours beautifully during the fall season.
Then my hubby developed allergies to maple trees, and I told him to cut it down, so that he wouldn’t suffer so much in the spring. Seriously, he’s gotten to the point that he needs steroid eye-drops or else wear a mask to avoid those pollens – and of course he doesn’t want to wear a mask, so he puts up with the suffering. *sigh* Thankfully, he doesn’t have the same allergies during the fall …
I’ll have to get out there and take more photos before all the leaves fall off ….
After Superstorm Sandy blew all the colour out of fall last year, it is so refreshing to be able to welcome back the colours of fall this year! And, there’s been no rain so far (knock on wood), and it’s all been bright sunshine!
Schedules have been so hectic this year, I haven’t been able to sit down and write anything, much less go out to take photos. I’m actually not minding traveling away for the soccer games; it gives me a chance to see the trees and the changing colours.
Hope you’re having a beautiful and colourful fall/autumn, wherever you are!
