BWHAAA, IT IS THAT TIME AGAIN….

Some of you already know I am not a fan of Autumn and Winter as they just last too long for me. Short grey days, cold, misty, slippery roads…..

This morning I took a picture of an oak tree in my garden, mind you, it was a sunny day so I thought I’d take a few pics.

This is a 40 year old European oak, its leafs are smaller and less colourful in Autumn than those of the American oak. I haven’t got a clue how tall it is but it it huge.

AUTUMN, BUT STILL IN BLOOM

It is Autumn, the leafs are getting other colors, others already fell down but it still feels like Summer. The weather is still very warm, sunny and very dry over here, very unusual for October but the days are becomming shorter every day. So I took my camera and made a few pictures of all the colors in my garden at the moment.
