The leaves continue to change colour …
My perception of browns has changed this year …
I’m liking this cinnamon brown effect, which I don’t recall noticing before.
This year, the browns are deeper and vibrant … not like the dried, washed-out, faded browns of before …
And out in the yard, the wet leaves still retain their colours …
Yep, I’m enjoying this fall season this year!
Good weekend, all.
Finally … a little bit of breathing room.
It’s been a hectic week and weekend past … we had a soccer tournament which was played in fog and mist in the cold morning …
… and then bright intermittent hot sunshine in the afternoon ….
I think it’s time to stop playing games outside … never mind that we have unseasonably warm days in November …
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.
Enjoy the red carpet, all.
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 ….
I’m drawn to brown these days. A soft brown, with maybe a hint of red, a touch of yellow-gold.
Or maybe those are just the colours at this stage.
At any other time, brown leaves meant that they were dried up, crunching as I walk on them.
But during this colourful time of year, the brown leaves are part of the scenery.
Like somehow it wouldn’t be fall or autumn if it was all just reds, yellows and oranges.
Yep. You need those browns in there.
This is their time to shine.
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!
