Up Through the Fall

Dappled light through golden leaves shot upward into our maple tree. The leaves are falling faster this year than last - has anyone else noticed this? Some forecasters say this winter could be the coldest Europe has seen in the last 1,000 years. They say the dramatic change is connected with the speed of the Gulf Stream, which they say has shrunk in half in just the last couple of years. Nothing to do but enjoy the Fall.

    Lovely, lovely, pic! I feel as if i am magically being transported and sitting in front of this tree (especially since today’s forecast here in sunny AZ is supposed to be a high of 104 Fahrenheit). Alas, Autumn is the one season I truly miss living here in the desert. Thank you for sharing!
