The Tulip Tree out front was slow to change color this year. Liriodendron is in the Magnolia family
l’m told they grow up to sixty feet tall, which I probably won’t see, but it’s a lovely tree.
I lost my 90+ year old Sycamore in 2002. I’d gotten a second opinion that it had to be taken down. a living thing that had come to the end of its life. I filled out a request for a new tree and the city planted this one.
It’s growing straight up it seems to me. The sky was blue today and made a perfect backdrop for the changing leaves.

Lovely shaped leaves two weeks ago.
Autumn leaves in photographs. Autumn light. We’re waiting for the red, yellow and orange colors to arrive. So far we’ve got mostly brown. Waiting for the frost
The leaves in the photographs give a lot of information to the viewer.
Somewhere in a box of old pics I have a photo of the kids with a backdrop of fake autumn trees and birches. I wish I could find it. It’s corny but fun. These photos have real leaves in them.
so if you’re thinking of taking pictures in leaves get ready. Here’s a link to Autumn in Pittsburgh four years ago

It just takes some getting used to. The new season. It changed this morning. We like the changing seasons, right?
This chilly icy, now tonight, snowy weather.
So hard on the trees, though. The driving.
Getting cozy by adding covers, readying for hibernation, thinking about making pots of chili, soup. Boiling the kettle for tea. Oh yes, keep on knitting a wooly sweater.
