Original thread deleted as being entirely redundant.

But hey! Look at the pretty leaves!

(and look at Dag's links if you're interested in pharmacists refusing to fill prescriptions because of "moral" issues)

Thanks Dag.

Funny thing is I actually posted in one of those threads.

Oh well...

I was on a trip and never even saw the other one.

There are only two colors of leaves that I am aware of. Green and brown.

The problem around here is that the leaves tend to fall off the trees as soon as they change.

So we get beautiful colors on the ground.

We had beautiful colors in September and October. Now most of the trees are leafless.

We got kinda shortchanged on fall colors this year in Illinois - very dry summer. Drought makes the leaves start to turn brown before the usual start of fall. It's a survival thing.

Very selfish of the trees, really. Doing stuff to ensure their survival instead of feeding our desire for displays of reds, yellows and oranges.

Ssselfish nassssty treessss. [Mad]

I second ludosti's statement...

The only green here is found as either very small, very numerous leaves that don't change color according to the time of year, or the bark of the trees. When an entire tree changes color, it usually means I'm going to have to replace it soon.

We're almost past the fall colours stage here, but it was beautiful and vivid while it lasted. [Smile]

Fall foliage.

We had a late fall this year in Rhode Island -- it's only now starting to get really cold. I don't have a useful camera, or I'd have taken some picures.

I'm with raia and rivka. What fall?

I can see a brown banana leaf off my back balcony, but all the other leaves are a far greener green than most of you have ever seen. And that goes for the coconut palms, pineapple, mango, papaya, lime, and all other tropical trees out here.

Aren't'cha jealous yet?

Nah. I like seasons. And insects smaller than my head.

How do you make a rain man? With clear plastic leaf bags filled up under the drain spout? Would he leak if you jammed in sticks for his arms?

You know what's a sign of impending winter?

Totally. Overweight. Squirrels.

I swear, they are waddling.

There so many squirrels here, but I haven't seen any fat ones. Oh, I want to see an obese squirrel.

Well earlier on in the year they are all sleek and now they're fat and can't go so fast.

(I think that big guy in the top center photos of the "fat squirrel" image-search is actually a prairie dog. Note that you can't see a tail peeking 'round the edges. Pretty durn cute, though.)

That reminds me of a conversation Andrew and I had last year:

Andrew: What the h@%& is wrong with that squirrel?
Kira: It's a chipmunk.

We had spectacularly beautiful foliage here for 2 weeks, then we had 2 days of record winds and they all blew off the trees.

We had some pretty colors also...but I didn't get a chance to catch some pictures. But, it did snow a few days ago!! I did take some decent (if i may say so myself) photos of that.

Here are the snow pictures I took

Oh, my Dad has two prairie dogs. And he wants a squirrel. They're cute. Not that fat though. [Smile]
