Fall Color

“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

We really didn't end up doing a "Fall Color" tour this year. The show from the backyard was enough for us. We don't have any maples but I get to see them every time I go to town.

Yesterday was leaf cleanup in the back yard. The big oak that litters the patio and packs the gutters on the north side of the house had lost most of it's leaves. 

Notice the pole - leftover from the former owners of the property. We're pretty sure it's a "meat pole" and we don't use it for that but it's handy to hang hummingbird feeders, etc., from in the summertime.

Then there's always the one that just waits until the last minute. Hopefully it will let them go so we can clean up before the snow flies. Many years it has to wait until the next spring.

The rock garden has a nice blanket for winter. Everything should survive nicely.

P.S. They won :/

  1. I'm still waiting for the ash tree to dump its leaves. A couple times in 17 years, it happened in one day, but most years it takes. ore time.
