Mother Nature is a fickle sort. Fall foliage has started to pop across the Northeast. Peak fall foliage where I live is expected to take place over the next ten days.
However, Mother Nature is having none of that. In some places you can see the bright multi-colored fingerprints of fall, in others, like a big tree in my backyard and much of the region, it still looks like the middle of the summer.
Oh, the tree has some spotty hints of yellow, but, if I didn’t know any better, I would think the calendar was stuck on July or August, instead of the middle of October. Yes, yes, I’m sure things will start to pick up soon, but not fast enough for my liking.
Starbucks has been selling its Pumpkin Spice Latte since late August, craft breweries across the world released their Octoberfest and Pumpkin Beers right about the same time, the least fall can do is show up on time in all its majestic glory.
In the mean time, I’m left with more photos of mums and my crazy dog deciding to give one a big whiff. Oh brother!
