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.

A SIGN OF AUTUMN COMMING CLOSER

When the flowers of the sedum spectabile are opening it is a sign of Autumn  comming closer. The days are definitely shorter, the evenings colder but after the crazy hot Summer we had I am welcomming Autumn for once, normally I am not so keen. The garden is a mess with burned plants and leafs but the sedum spectabile is looking good, ofcourse being a succulent it loves warm dry weather. And this plant is a heaven for bees and butterflies.

Have a great Sunday !

OMG

I can’t believe my eyes, it is SNOWING !!!! I hate snow ! Luckily it is not cold enough to cover the ground and make the roads slippery. Snow is a problem here as we don’t get it often. Under normal circumstances we have loads and loads of traffic jams but when it snows…..disaster !!! and lots of extra work for the hospitals……
