It is November in Michigan and 70 degrees (Fahrenheit) outside. Though there are a lot of bare, leafless trees, there is still a lot of color on them, even green. I don’t remember fall color lasting this long, ever. I know it will be gone soon (there’s talk of snow this weekend) so I thought I’d post the last of my autumn photos as my way of saying bye – ’til next year.
My Childhood Country Home
I grew up near this tiny, little, mucky lake. Luckily it is too swampy to have it spoiled with cottages or developments. I love this place. If I ever get my old 35mm photos scanned, I would love to show off the lake throughout the years – during all seasons and at all times of the day.
My Grownup City Home
The same backyard Maple tree that changed from red and yellow leaves to a pure butter yellow.
It’s time to rake. Looks like I’ll miss the first city leaf pickup tomorrow. I’ll have to shoot for the 2nd round of pickups.
This is the first year I’ve noticed my Korean Spice Viburnum and spirea looking nice. I’m sure they’ve colored in previous years, I just have been too busy to notice.
See you next spring.
