Summer seemed like it would never end, but Autumn has arrived at last! The trees changed almost overnight, and then started dropping leaves by the bucketful. It's not a New England display, but I think the trees in our region put on a lovely autumn show!A few flowers are still hanging on. This hydrangea is aging gracefully, it's bright lavender flowers fading to a soft, dusty violet.
Autumn here also brings a thick, ghostly morning fog. The streetlamps shining through the fog and leafy orange treetops tint the air yellow, like old gas lamp lighting. It makes for a very lovely and peaceful, if slightly unworldly morning stroll!
