I realize the title of my post is sort of an oxymoron since I’ve redecorated my blog into a winter wonderland, but work with me.  As we bid adieu to the month of November, I wanted to share the last vestiges of fall photos I snapped willy nilly:

It’s been a quirky fall, with summer-like temperatures at the beginning, the leaves took a while to finally change (as you can see, some of the trees in mid-october still have plenty of green leaves while other trees were changing):

Yesterday’s balmy but windy weather, peppered with droves of rain finally stripped the trees of the final leaves that were still clinging to branches.  Old Man Winter is getting ready to move in.

Are you ready for winter?

  1. Beautiful! I wish the trees got that gorgeous here in the fall. They just turn brown and dry up. But the weather is fabulous. I love that summer stretches out well into November in NC. BTW, speaking of pictures, I can’t wait to hear what you think of the portrait!

  2. We walked past some burning bushes last night that had just a fringe of bright red still clinging to them. It was very cold, and the juxtaposition struck me much as it does you.

  3. I am not sure I am ready for winter, but I sure am glad to see the record heat come to an end. Also, to get at least a chance for rain on a weekly basis.

    Happy WW! (Wordless Wednesday, or WORM WORM. Or, maybe both.)

  4. Ready for winter? I just got used to fall! LOL! Though, I have to admit, looking at your photos made me a little blue – I thought to myself, “Wow, this is the last day of fall in the year 2011. We don’t have much time left in 2011! 2011 is going to be gone and we won’t ever see it again…” Woah, a little too deep this afternoon! 😉
