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 ….
Driving back to the hotel, I looked out the window while at a traffic light, and my eyes found this palm tree, silhouetted against the late afternoon sun.
Nothing special … I just liked the look of the almost symmetrical pattern of the leaves and branches! Plus, I needed to start up my 365-project theme again. There must be other trees that I’ve taken photos of, but not posted about. Anyway …
Such delight in a simple thing as a tree on the road.
