THE LAST AUTUMN FOLIAGE

The day before all the leaves fell from the trees was beautiful. Garry wasn’t up to going out — his shoulder has a nerve issue and he’s getting a cortisone shot for it next week. But the sun was out and filtering through the leaves in our woods in mid-afternoon. I just grabbed my little camera and went out. Shot half a dozen pictures of the sun filtering through the oak trees. 

I did not know that these would be the last pictures of the leaves this year. Autumn was so short … just three weeks from when the leaves changed to disappearing. Now, it’s very cold outside. It will warm up a bit, but fall ended abruptly. Overnight. These are my last two pictures from Autumn 2017, taken November 8th. Our oak woods.

  1. It was raining leaves on me at the park Thursday… I tried getting some pictures of that, but the falling leaves just seem to blend in with everything else. I think most of the leaves will still be around for a bit longer… we’ve been flirting with cold the past two weeks, but have barely even had a true frost yet. I’m not even sure the grass has died yet, which I’ve been hoping for since the last time I cut it in August…

  4. Our leaves are sparse in color and the trees bare already it seems from the rain last week. Not a real autumn

    • No, not much of an autumn at all. We didn’t even get color till the third week in October — which is very late since we usually get at least the beginning of color in September. And now, before mid November, gone. I hope that doesn’t signal an awful winter to come.

  5. Autumn ended abruptly here a few days ago. At Halloween hardly any leaves had fallen. That’s bad since I can no longer rake them up. I even picked raspberries in the late October, a rare occurrence. Now we have had snow and everything will be coming down this week. I am hoping it warms up enough for me to bribe a neighbor to rake.

  7. It is really cold up here, and the pellet stove is roaring. With the high winds we had this week, the leaves came floating down like snowflakes. Fall is definitely over.

    • Our heat is up and we both feel better. I hadn’t realized how the damp and cold was getting to us. It’s not exactly cozy in here … but for us, this IS cozy! Wasn’t that strange? Most of the leaves were still up, at least all of the oaks … and whoosh, by morning, gone. Strangest autumn end I’ve ever seen.
