Great photos. Fall colours seem to be behind in my area. I would have thought the trees would have changed sooner with the drought we have had this year and the number of trees that either died or dropped their leaves early but no such luck.
Here in southern New England, the fall colors are often spectacular, especially to someone raised in the desert West and the piney Sierras (the autumns here are the ones I read about in books). This year they promise to be on the dull side, because it's been extraordinarily dry. But still nice, and the cooler weather is welcome after the hottest summer ever.
I'll try to post some pics if I get anything nice. It's still very early here -- peak color is usually mid-October.
Not even close here in DC. It's pretty, but I dread what follows. I moved here from Minnesota 24 years ago and never escaped. I got enough winter up there to last me a lifetime. Relatively speaking, winters here have really sucked the last three years. Once it gets much below 25-30 degrees, and I find it really hard to crawl on the bike in the morning.
I usually rake leaves the middle to the end of November.
Those photos are insanely beautiful. We just have a bunch of brown leaves on the lawn, and John asked, "Is it fall already?" Hardly any in-between anymore.
It's either bitter cold, with a day of snow 3' high followed by 70 degree days.......or 150% humidity followed by 3' of dead leaves, then bitter cold.......maybe some freak tornado-like things thrown in because why the hell not......
