We are getting several days of light rain. Just what we needed and it may help the leaves to start turning color. Only a few trees have begun. The Dogwoods are always the first here where I live. Leaves are falling as are their berries and soon, it will be a bare branched tree. Where I am, the leaves are 2/3's down by Halloween, and only after Thanksgiving are they mostly all down. The oaks hold on the longest with maybe a third of their leaves still there looking brown, dried and ugly and rattling in the wind up there a hundred feet up..vowing not to let go and force you to rake again in January.
Got my hair done this morning. Raining like anyone's business when I came out so I didn't go around to do the other things I would like to have done (not time sensitive things) as I wanted to enjoy my hair-do a little longer rather than have the wet wind blowing it and dampening it under the umbrella as I slogged from place to place. Strictly a female, and probably just me, thing but..there you are. Never said I wasn't a diva. AND after paying a Queen's ransom for my hairdo.,.no use wasting the money right at the git-go.
