Fall colors

There are no leaf peepers in France, as far as I know. We don't get the fall color spectacle that parts of the US and Canada get this time of year. Still, there is color to be seen if you look for it, especially in the vineyards. Most of the trees at our place go yellow, but the leaves on the two maples out front turn a nice orange before dropping off. I'll post some shots of leaf color over the next few days.

Some yellows, oranges, and reds appear in these grape leaves.

It's not as cold as predicted this morning, but it's colder than it has been since last spring. The central heat is on and is warming up the house quickly. Granted, the house has not had a chance to cool down too much, yet. Sunny days and afternoon fires in the wood burner keep things relatively warm.
