It's Official

The signal tree (across the road and two down) on our street is now alight with the beginnings of autumn colour.   Can the others be far behind.  I have seen trees 'turning' on other streets but the 'signal tree' on our street has been a little later in getting started.  The calendar says it's still summer but the trees know best.

  1. I am really looking forward to autumn. Last year, it didn't get cool here until November, but this year, I've had the windows open at night twice already.

    That's wonderful because summer was brutal again.

    1. You must have been given our summer because this was the 'summer that wasn't' here. Autumn is my favourite time of year.

  2. We have dots of color here and there already. I know we have this cool and damp weather from Irma, but we have already had days like this. I really want to turn the heat on. Normally we do that around the 7th of October. Temp has been down to 43 before now. Feel like winter is going to come along before we are prepared.

  3. I love the Fall, except the leaves makes it hard to find your golf ball even in the Fairway!

    1. I'm no golfer but I think I see possibilities there.

  4. Oh how wonderful! I love the autumn. Went out with hubby looking at trucks today and brought along my camera for any photo ops but unfortunately there were none to be found just yet. Soon though, I just know it. Have a wonderful evening.

  6. It's always smart to pay attention to nature, a good signal tree is always your friend.

  7. Some of the burning bushes around here are turning. The nights have been quite chilly for most of the last three weeks. I'm not a fan of summer but I do like a warm fall, and we aren't getting one so far!!

  8. We have a few signal trees around here too, by the time they start I know the hills areas will already be ablaze with colour and looking glorious.
    For spring here, my signal tree is the wattle by the bus stop.

  9. Our calendar is telling us down this way that spring is here...and spring definitely is in the air. A clear blue sky with warm days...(Personally, I'd hope the cooler weather had stuck around a bit longer...and hopefully, we will get another burst of it before spring rushes into summer)!

  10. I believe my yard man has mowed for the last time this season and I turned off my AC yesterday:-) Not a lot of color yet.

  11. Our trees here in the UK are slowly beginning to change colour.
    I had a brilliant walk yesterday crunching the leaves! Yes, I'm just a big kid at heart!

    All the best Jan
