Brrrrrrr……. The temperature this morning was 28 degrees and the wind was howling all night. It won’t be long and we will need the wool blankets and hot chocolate! The Autumn Colors are later thas year than normal.
View from our deck
This picture was taken today, Saturday, October 26th from our deck. As you can see not much change in the leaves just yet but I can tell you the leaves have started falling. With the cold nights that are forecast the leaves will be at peak in about two weeks. I am hoping for the beautiful rich colors of autumn, shades of yellow, red, and orange.
Red Oak Tree Acorns
Acorns, hickory nuts and walnuts are falling, the squirrels and turkey are feasting on all the acorns and hickory nuts.
Hickory Tree Nuts
Looks like the squirrels have been eating the hickory nuts, the green one has squirrel teeth marks.
The Black Walnuts are starting to fall and the hulls are turning black. It’s almost time to start gathering up the walnuts!
