Ruby Tuesday - Tunnel of Trees

I love old streets where the trees on each side arch over to make a leafy tunnel.  I drove over to an old part of Tulsa around 14th and Carson just south of down town.  These are nice old 2 story houses with big front porches and garages behind the house at the end of a single driveway,  The trees were planted when the houses were built and that was probably in the 1910's so the big trees are 100 years old. I took this shot last Saturday, November 6.  Trees were just beginning to turn to fall colors and there were brilliant patches of color with large areas still green.  On Saturday night the temperature dropped to freezing or a degree or so below.  It didn't bother my roses or chrysanthemums,  but turned the zinnias, cannas, and potted portulacas black and withered.  I didn't have time to get the camera out Sunday or Monday but will tomorrow and expect to see much more color in the trees.  Stay tuned.

Driving down that avenue of trees, it must be so difficult to keep your eyes on the road! Absolutely beautiful. Leeds, Yorkshire had a day of torrential rain and strong winds so we now have virtually no leaves left on our trees. I read that up in the Penines snow has fallen already!!!! Oh what bliss.......

Beautiful fall colors, they really pop against the green.
