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

Trollstigen (Troll’s Road) in Norway. If you click the link you can see pictures of the winding Troll’s Road.
One year ago I was on the Arne and Carlos‘ Knitting Cruise going up the coast of Norway on MS Finnmarken. Thanks to Pam from Massachusetts, my knitting colleague and ship roommate for sending this pic today. Yes that was a wonderful trip of a lifetime and there are many great memories.
I was so happy to receive an email today with this photo of myself that Pam took by the Troll Crossing sign. I was able to go and find the one I took of her, too.
Our tour bus was to drive up the winding roads but due to bad weather, the Troll Road was closed. (After looking at the photos of the road I think I am a bit relieved it was closed)
Thanks again for the fun memory, Pam. I’m glad you follow the blog. Hope you like this post!
It’s been unbearably hot this past week and one cool place to go is the movies. Three of the grandkids and I went to the movie theatre to see Toy Story 4. We took turns sitting in the chair of this cardboard commercial for an upcoming movie.
When I was a kid I loved reading Charles Addams cartoons in a big book we had in our house.
