The wind and rain this weekend are doing their best to tear the color from the trees, but autumnal beauty persists into November here. It's a rule. How else would we manage to transition into the dark season?
There was a break in the rain this morning when I took these photos, but looking at that sky, you knew it wouldn't last.
And of course it's raining again now as I type. The next round of yard clean up will have to wait.
We got a lot of yard clean up done earlier - beds cleaned out and trimmed, lawn mowed and edged, first leaves raked.
Now we'll wait and enjoy the color-in the rain.
Fortunately we can enjoy much of it from the inside. Josy Cat can too.
The Christmas cacti are blooming for Halloween and Thanksgiving.
Tom just reset all of the antique clocks in the house, so I think we are finished turning back time. No more daylight saved for this year. Too bad we couldn't have saved a few whole days of daylight from this summer, when we had an abundance, and plunked them down into dark November.
November is upon us.
I'll be away from blogging for a bit. We're hitting the road again. I'll see some of you on Facebook. Bye.
