Nature Notes and Signs of the Season
Visit Michelle at the eye-catching Nature Notes Thursday Meme for incredible photos of the season. You just won't believe the pictures she takes of insects and leaves and birds!
This is the fireworks tree from a couple weeks ago. I passed it in the misty/rainy afternoon yesterday and I saw that it has dropped a lot of leaves, far more than you see in this photo. It's been raining and windy, which helps the trees lose their leaves. I missed taking this photo on the only sunny day we had this week, so you can sort of imagine that the day was misty with a glaring overcast sky. Just knowing that makes me squint when I look at it and want my sunglasses.
