Pale Autumn

paleautumn1101.jpg

Taken this morning while the frost was still on the ground. I think it gives the grass and fields a really interesting color, especially when contracted with the foliage. You can see a larger version here, which adds in more background; that one pretty much fully captures my rustic, pastoral living situation.

Welcome to November, everyone.

Frost?! I was just out walking around in a short-sleeved shirt, enjoying the mid-60s F. Maybe I don't want to go to Kettering for Thanksgiving .

Look - it's so cold the grass turned blue!

Steve Buchheit | November 1, 2006 04:00 PM

That wouldn't be the only thing blue. :) I'm talking about toes.

We in the NE corner have already had snow that's stuck around for a few hours (and in some places it stayed over a day).

I take it you haven't had to rake leaves yet? Sometimes that'll make a guy look at nature differently - like a pain in the neck.

John Scalzi | November 1, 2006 06:16 PM

I don't have enough trees to make it a chore, and anyway, the wind around here is strong enough that all the leaves eventually blow away -- into the neighboring field, so it's not like it's somebody else's raking problem.

See, now that's what we don't have in California-
fields and foliage Legally Obligated to be
pretty and complementary. But what would happen if that contract should lapse; or one of those elements goes on strike?
