November's Sky

As I write this the rain is coming down outside.  Steadily, since sometime in the night, it fills the dips in the roads and makes puddles everywhere.

These pictures were taken a few days before the rain, but as you can see the sky was overcast and predicting rainy days. I did want to get a couple of fall leaf color trees off to you -- before they are all gone.

Its been one of our best color seasons -- does that mean it will be a cold winter?  Does that mean it will be an early spring?  The seasons bring so many questions - and often the answers aren't anywhere near correct.

Guess its best to take each day as it comes savoring its richness in whatever form we are given.

"Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." - George Eliot


  1. Hi Penny
    Your pictures are so beautifully vivid! We had less color this year than we have had in years. My Sugar Maple will be a vivid RED when it gets the correct amount of sun and water during the summer. This year there wasn't too much red and it was mostly yellow. Are my assumptions correct? Who knows. I just calls as I sees em!!

    Two days of heavy rain and 40mph sustained winds have brought most of our leaves to the ground. Now if we dry out and can blow them to the road the County will come and suck them up and cart them off to compost. I like that!!
    Happy Weekend, Penny

  2. Beautiful photos...I've heard tell we will have a milder winter than last year. I do hope that's true.

  3. Just look at that color--so gorgeous! After the long, hot summer most of our foliage has just turned brown. Very little too enjoy around here this fall, so I love seeing the lovely colors elsewhere.

  4. We don't get colour like that, at least not in this part of Oz,

  5. Stunning colours! We don't get quite that luscious intensity here in the UK but I've noticed that we've had a lot more colour this year and positive drifts of red berries of all kinds - I do think we're going to be in for a bad winter.

  6. beautiful trees! I'm trying to adjust to winter coming but with the cold comes achy bones.

  7. I've never been able to attach autumn colours to either the type of winter we get, or the type of spring, but as you say, we can rejoice in the colour when we get it.

  8. The colours are astounding, the rain makes the leaves sparkle.. Thank you your photo's are a delight on a wet Cornish morning.

  9. So beautiful! I have often wondered what is responsible for the varying intensity of the autumn leaves from year to year. Sometimes they are just breathtaking, as yours seems to be this year. Enjoy them while they last :)
