Another week of significant changes. The weekend brought rain and wind, and it’s been breezy every since, so off flew the leaves of maple, birch and smaller shrubs. The pines have shed their old needles. Across the way, we can see more of the barn roof and white house once hidden by large maples. Oak and beech now rule the forest.
It is very cold and windy today, with beautiful clouds scudding across the sky and with snow showers forecast tomorrow, we’ll see what happens over the next week as we transition into dormancy.
The colour is more subtle but still lovely.
Yes, the oak and beech are nice – November colors!
The vista is still quite beautiful. Nice to have that barn as an anchor of sorts. And, lovely clouds! We seldom get those kinds of clouds.
Thank you, it’s my happy little valley. 🙂 This view always warms my heart. I love the lavender-violet tinges to the clouds, they were really great today. They are predicting temps in the 20s overnight and AN INCH of snow tomorrow morning before changing back to rain. Good golly! Back to the 50s for Fri. and Sat. thankfully. 😉
It is snowing right now, 33F. Your weather is looking pretty nice by comparision. 😉
Beautiful view with lovely colours.
Thank you, Pauline.
This is so amazing to keep track of! Chilliness was here, today, but I’m eating green picked, but now orange, Sungold Tomatoes, so sunshine is on my tongue!
Thank you, Alice. Late tomatoes are such a treasure!
Just lovely. So beautiful. If I look out my windows I just see other houses, trees too, of course, but it’s always a surprise to think I could be somewhere where I could look out side and see…nature and no buildings. 🙂
Thank you, Gigi. I love where I live so much because there is wild land with lots of trees and wildlife and not too many people. 🙂 It is very private and peaceful. I find it so nurturing.
It amazes me how fast the view changes!
Spring and fall are pretty dramatic around here!
Delightful view with stunning colours…The shading is more unobtrusive yet dazzling…
Thank you, fall is a beautiful time of year around here. 🙂
I love the russets of late fall. Austere, but restful after the glory of October.
There is a poem in the progression of Eliza’s images, and another one here:
The russets of late fall–
Austere, but restful
After the glory of October
(Both inspire me to walk outside and look. Gratefully, )
They are indeed, preparing us for the monotones of winter.
And I even love those glittering monotones. More like muted colors in Maine, where we have lots of evergreens to add contrast to the white landscape.
🙂 You’re convincing me… slowly. ;-D
Snow! None here yet but the same – cold, rainy, high winds carried most of the leaves away. Snow just east of us in the ADKs! I brought in all of my plants and bird baths and put out the heated bird bath. I picked a lot of green tomatoes and I stocked up on bird seed.
It got down to 23 last night (goodbye calendulas) and it has been snowing for the past two hours with it sticking to the leaves. sigh. I think you are smart to have an escape plan. 😉
It snowed here, too, Eliza! It was pretty but I’m glad I’ll be leaving soon to escape the brunt of it. Sometimes, for a second or two, I miss winter.
Only a second or two, lol! 😉
I’m tempted to start a view post over at my blog, I enjoy yours so much – it would be fascinating to see the pond throughout the year (I mean, I do know what it looks like, but just to have a record of it would be fascinating – perhaps it’s a New Year task!).
Oh, yes, please do. It is pretty cool when you have 4 seasons as we do, with spring and fall being the most dramatic.
I am amazed at how much we can see in fall and spring – and how little in the summer, thanks to the trees and leaves!
Love the difference and beauty in each photo♥
Thank you, Summer.
Beautiful views, Eliza. There’ve been a couple days when I stood outside and watched leaves falling, catching the light. We’re behind you here, so I’m looking forward to more color…
The color is softer, Eliza, and look at the gorgeous clouds!
Yes, the clouds were exceptional that day. Thanks for your visit! 🙂
It changes so fast this time of year! Love all the views 🙂
Thank you, Heather~
So glad I got to see the colors before the leaves fell off. One never knows 😉
Isn’t it amazing how quickly the changes happen! Just three weeks ago it still looked so green!
I know, it always amazes me, even after all these years.
What a lovely view you have. But snow, already? Yow. We had light frost two nights ago and some tiny spits of something resembling snow. Today we are in full wind and rain mode. I swear you can almost feel a sense of relief from the plants and soil with this good soaking. While I mourn the loss of leaves each fall, it really opens up our view and reveals the beautiful bones of the trees.
Thank you, Brenda. I am grateful for the moisture and to see a bit of water in the stream. We still are far behind, but with the leaves down, the drain on the trees will be less. I hope we can catch up soon, the water table is still low.
Amazing how fast Mother transitions at this time of year, isn’t it, Eliza? I had a heck of time chasing color but I did it. Gorgeous view you showed here! My favorite is the one of October 18th. 🙂 ❤
Yes, she does. I’ve been loving your posts – you were very successful in your captures! ❤
Thank you, Eliza!!! I really had Lady Luck with me this year that and my determination to find different and color this Fall. I have so many more, too many to show but as I look at them, I am amazed by what I did. SO glad you have been enjoying!!! ❤
Some trees losing leaves except the evergreens.
Thank heaven for the green of pine and hemlock to help us through the winter.
It changes so quickly at this time of year in your neck of the woods, doesn’t I? Gorgeous photos.
Thank you, Rebecca. Yes, it is rapid. This next week’s view will be very different yet again.
