The Leaves are Turning

Summer is past and nights are turning cooler. We are beginning to see some fall color but we need a touch of frost to get the full show. It is nice when the outer leaves turn color while the inside leaves are still green.

This is Indian Summer and I love this time of year. The days are warm and dry, the nights are cool and crisp. It is time for long walks and football games.

Hello !

C'est vrai que l'automne est une très belle saison et qu'il faut profiter de l'été indien. Mais aujourd'hui, chez nous, ce sont "les épisodes cévenols" : pluies diluviennes et orages pendant des heures. :-(
See you later...

Good to see you have a touch of the golden beauty of autumn too. In Norway we've had some frost night already, so we are a bit ahead of you :-)

It seems the whole world is having a colourful autumn. We are reliably informed by the BBC news that this is because we had a wet summer and are now enjoying a dry spell allowing the leaves to make these wonderful colours.
Although I absolutely love the autumnal colouration of the trees, it would have been nice if they could come via a rather dryer and warmer summer!!!
Lovely picture: I'm a jigsaw addict and my highest accolade for any picture is "that would make a lovely jigsaw".

We had 15 inches of rain above the average this year. When the weather turns cooler we should have a beautiful autumn. Hopefully some more jigsaw pictures.

Beautiful, isn't it! We have fall clors in Ontario as well.

I used to hate fall in France... it was always grey. Much nicer in Canada, thanks to the Indian Summer!
