Fall Foliage, South Pas Style (#4)


Winter officially starts in 5 days. (Not that Southern California ever pays attention to the rules.)

Well, it's certainly got wetter & colder down here in the South.

One day it's record-breaking 110degrees, next month it's overnite low's in the 20's.

We're definitely not near the equator.

Wow, what colors! No winter here yet, except for a few nippy nights. But no colors like your trees, either. I now feel like autumn is within a day's drive!

We are delighting in the Texas winter - cool cloudy skies and temps in the 40's and 50's ALL DAY LONG. I am indulging myself in wearing the sweaters I bought earlier in the year, relishing in the fact that it's really too cold to wear shorts. I remember a Christmas as a child when we couldn't wear our holiday sweaters because it was in the 80's.

Your beautiful perspective and use of diagonal line here is stunning. I love how the red, orange and yellows pop against the green with the clouds as a perfect piece de resistance on that perfect sky blue!!!

Beautiful colors. I've only just begun to see some slight color changes here in the desert.

Sure, sure, rub it in Laurie.

Your photo proves my point that we actually do have changes of seasons in Southern California!

Look at all the different species of foliage. A metaphor for the diversity we have in Southern California:)

Just got a Facebook message from a dear friend in Minnesota who said it's -5 degrees there: "Time to break out the really warm Norwegian sweaters."

Sheesh, we break out warm sweaters when it gets below 70 here in Southern California!

Thanks, you guys!

I just love the way the San Gabriel Valley turns so many colors in Autumn -- but always with a ubiquitous and beloved palm tree nearby...

I like Alex's take on it. Lovely.

Til next time, everyone...
