While I was waiting for Sara to come home from school, I walked towards her and photographed several photos of the leftover Autumn foliage on our street. After all it’s still Fall until December 21.
Yesterday, Kevin gave the girls a chore for today. He wanted to get the fallen leaves swept off the deck. Katelynn decided to make it a fun game to sweep and rake the leaves together into a big pile, so she could jump into it. And yep, even a 16-year-old can have fun in a big pile of Autumn leaves. After she was done and got many doggy kisses from Zoey, she tossed the leaves into our garden beds. Tomorrow, her and Sara have to do this chore all over again. In the meantime, it rained a lot more leaves from our Bradford trees this evening.
🍂 Happy Fall Break 2019! 🍂
The constant change of the temperatures brings more Autumn colors into North Texas. On a different note, the wind blows the leaves from the branches in no time. So, timing is everything for the next few days. If I miss the window, Autumn will be gone and the trees will be bare. Every day counts to make the Autumn feeling last just a little bit longer. This afternoon, I’ve also noticed that our Bradford Pear trees changed into their maroon/golden dresses. From one day to the other, they went from deep green into this beautiful red and a few splashes of golden-yellow. The wind makes them dance in my garden. Soon, we will have a nice blanket of Autumn in our backyard.
The sun poked through the clouds. And that was a good opportunity to capture more photos of Autumn. We are still not out of the woods with rain. It suppose to get wetter and cooler this week. Today, it was warm and humid in the upper 70s. I had to turn on my air conditioner in the car. otherwise, I’ve almost melted, while picking up Sara from school this afternoon. 🥵🍁🍂🍃
November is coming to an end, soon. The last days of Autumn have arrived. My neighbor has an Ash tree in her frontyard, which always puts its golden dress on first. Then the other trees will follow to dance in the “Autumn Ball”, until the wind will take their foliage and makes them bare until the beginning of March, when they start to show their beautiful blooms. I take it all in, before it will be all gone and Winter knocks on the door.
