This variety of érable (maple), whatever it is, has dark red leaves that turn bright orange in the fall. The leaves are all on the ground now; this photo is a couple of weeks old. Now it's time to get out there and rake.

The two maples next to our driveway have deep red leaves in summer that turn bright orange in fall.

When I got up this morning I saw the full moon out the window. A few minutes later I looked again and it was gone. The eclipse is just about to start, but I have a feeling that the fog thickened and will obscure it. Oh well, we'll see it all on tv and the internet.


  1. Ahhh, I'm loving the fall leaves everywhere, this year.

  2. Like Judith, I’m loving the fall leaves everywhere, too... just not here.

  3. My views out of my home are all yellow leaves until I drive into the city and then I get to see all of the colors of Autumn. Maybe it is having so much time to contemplate and compare other years that each season seems to be spectacular!

  4. judy, it does seem to be a good year for them here.

    mitch, yes, well, 20ºC in November is not bad.

    mary, there are always subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) differences from year to year.


Tell me what you think!
