We had real clouds today – not fog – and it was a nice crisp fall day
I did check weather in September, and while September and the first half of October usually is a lot more like Summer, we get these days where we get “teased” that Fall is on its way. Today was such a day, and I am loving it.
We have a gorgeous Gingko tree in our front yard – today I saw the first yellow leaves on it
Our Gingko tree doesn’t hit its peak color until November – and all of its leaves don’t fall until just about December. We may not have the fall colors that some parts have in the US – but what we have lasts until at least Thanksgiving – some until Christmas. I do like the “extended” fall colors – and Lamorinda is a very special part of the SF Bay Area that has some “secret” fall color spots that are pretty awesome, actually. I remember “leaf drop” by mid October in New Jersey, and it was always a bummer – things got really gray and drab soon after that. Snow was actually a good thing – it made for something nice to at least look at.
My “car” for the last year
I’ve been riding my bike for more than 2 years now to get around – and so I am even more aware of the weather and what is going around me in my little part of the world – its something many people aren’t even aware of – being slaves to their cars.
Nearing Harvest Time outside of Baker City, Oregon
Yes, its already Harvest Time – both a literal and metaphoric great time of the year. And this year has been really special – Kat and I reaping the harvest of what we planted earlier and throughout the year.
Well – “DX Season” is nigh – there is plenty of DX to be had – if you know where to harvest it.
