Fall Preview

October 31, 2010 at 11:19 pm 2 comments

In Elizabeth City, North Carolina, I’m still waiting for a lot of the leaves to change.  There is no hope for the pines, of course.  The Bald Cypresses have started to brown and a few of the other species have decided it is fall just in past week.  The baby American Chestnuts are still green, but a few of the baby Pawpaws have started to yellow.  Overall, the predominant color is still green.  Two weeks ago, I was in Wisconsin for business.  Wisconsin trees have solidly acknowledged it is autumn and the result is beautiful!  One afternoon after my day’s meetings, I went for a quick walk around my hotel.  I got to enjoy the crisp air, the sound of leaves crunching under my feet and get a quick preview of what’s to come back home.  : )

    Here in the Blue Ridge, about 300 miles to your left, autumn arrived all at once a couple of weeks back, then bad weather took most of the leaves off the trees all at once. most are completely bare now and we have a chance of rain mixed with SNOW in the forecast from Friday!

    Fall is being weird this year. Went to get apples, but my favorite varieties weren’t ready yet. Went on a hike to see fall colors, but the trees hadn’t changed yet. Weirdness.

    And, it’s supposed to be in the 80’s this week… hmmm…
