Last week on a trip to the garden, I noticed that the lilac bush at the corner was still full of leaves, some yellow, some still green. Today, about 3 days later, just about all of the leaves have fallen. I count 10 still hanging on for dear life. I thought the still colored leaves lying on the snow were a good contrast to most of them at the foot of the small tree.
That's all I've got today.
Weather? There's another icy, snow mix a fallen all around me now.
Some days I long for a cocoon.
This is about it with regards to fall colors around our place.
The last rites have been performed.
Rest in peace, autumn.
Yes please, a moment of silence.

Hmm, methinks it's time for that hose to find a winter home, don't you think? :-)ReplyDelete
My hose is yellow. It rests outside the cellar door for most of the year. I use it on the bike most every day.ReplyDelete
Yup, somehow our hoses never make it into the garage before the snow falls. Wonder why?ReplyDelete
Nicely done, BM! Winter seems to have claimed its place in your world. It's going to get very cold here tonight! Like 27 degrees! That's crazy! But no snow.ReplyDelete
we had snow in ne tx last night, too. very odd to see green trees, green grass and snow...ReplyDelete
A moment of silence please for the sudden passing of autumn in Maine.ReplyDelete
Sad to say, winter has been sneaking up on us here in Ontario too. I don't mind winter but I do wish fall would last a little longer.ReplyDelete
No snow for us of course, but today we have a tornado watch and then temps plunging down to 24 degrees tomorrow night. Very unusual for north Florida in November!ReplyDelete
Cool story bro #NOLIFERReplyDelete
So that's it then Birdman.. autumn is overs! Roll on the winter pics, j'adore!ReplyDelete
p.s. the Quay part of Elizabeth Quay is where the boats come in.

Here the beautiful fall colors are fading into an uniform and continuous grayish rain...ReplyDelete
We have yucky wet snow/rain here today! Awful.ReplyDelete
All is quiet...ReplyDelete
We're getting snow here too. That's a good thing.ReplyDelete
What we're getting now might be the stuff that stays around.
Love the post and photo.ReplyDelete
That's the metaphor autumn-into-winter is all about. Poetic photo.ReplyDelete
Cocoon. Not a bad idea. Wasn't there a movie about that? As I recall, a lot of old folks who weren't so old anymore. At the moment, that doesn't sound half bad.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photo...I like your folksy weather forecasts...ReplyDelete
It was cold down here, too. Maybe 40s overnight and 65 - 70 during the day.ReplyDelete
Hi Birdman, Gotta love the last rites for Autumn. All the way over here on the other side Old Man Winter has a foot in the door. Have a good day. JohnReplyDelete
