Cold, cold, cold


October was unseasonably warm.  It was actually a really pleasant month.  We only turned the heat on a few times – mostly when we had guests staying because it’s just plain bad manners to let guests freeze.  Now that November has arrived the mercury is dropping.  Most of the colorful leaves have fallen and the remaining ones are dingy and look very weather-worn.  As we had a visitor in October who doesn’t normally experience the change of seasons being a Floridian and all, we took a walk one day and spotted some beautiful colors.  Since most of these are now gone, I want to post them as a reminder that this gorgeousness does exist…and remember that as we head in to the dark, cold days of an Edinburgh winter.  You probably won’t believe this but right now at 4:18PM it is getting dark…so much so that cars have their headlights on because it’s pretty much dusk.  So, here’s the gorgeous, bright, cheery color.

This gorgeous Japanese Maple is outside our flat and I love watching it through the seasons.  Right now there's only a few of these gorgeous leaves hanging on...and soon there will be none.
