More Touches of Fall

Ellie and I decided to brave the weather, given that the rains were predicted for the entire week. The everpresent vines. They were the first to turn. Were it not for the colors, this would have been a very bleak morning.
Now the walkway is filling up with leaves. They are falling because of the rain. In the woods, none of the trees have turned, and the walkways are clear.
Ellie really can't appreciate the color. I'm just glad she's willing to slog in the nonstop rain.
The rain has lifted and the sky is brightening up. Just a tease, though.
We hadn't walked far when it started again. We had the entire waterfront to ourselves.

Those are the breaks in Upstate New York, in both the spring and fall.

Dear pb,

Love the photos of the fall foliage and the Chemung. Are the leaves that colorful already? I can only see a few trees turning from here.

Too true, too true!

There is a lot of color, but it is scattered.

The warmer the area, the less color we will see.

Cool damp mornings on the Chemung have fooled me into believing it is Fall.
