Oscar and I went out and about in the neighborhood this past Wednesday.
I took a few photos.
You will notice how deeply gray the day is. That is very common for our area after summer and before the snow comes. These were taken at 1 P.M. in the afternoon. Yeah, I know. See the automatic porch lights on in the background of the first picture? It's not my imagination, it gets DARK in the middle of the day this season.
Still, in our neighborhood at least, people make a few color decisions to help them stay cheerful, like a cow mailbox, and painting the house and garage a GORGEOUS combination of bluey greeny.
The first photo shows why we love our deciduous trees. Even on the grey dark day, it seems to glow.
