WHAT THE ? ?

When did 
holiday decorations
go "inflatable?"

(I prefer low-tech
old fashioned.)

NOVEMBER'S ALMOST GONE

Please take your freezing cold
weather with you.

(Saturday's forecast --
back in the 60's!)

Go figure.

WINTER TAKES HOLD

Temperatures drop.
Colors fade.
But beauty remains.

CATCHING DINNER
ON THE MERAMEC

Last weekend,
just before the cold snap,
the trout were biting.

Rainbows and Browns.

DECIDING  ON A TREE

Getting ready for Christmas.

Just the right size.
one that will hold all
the ornaments.

And maybe a few
new decorations.

Tis the season!

HOW TO WAKE UP
AT THE CABIN

1.   Snuggling in front of a warm fire.

2.  Too many soft blankets.

3.  The smell of bacon coming from the kitchen.

4.  All doggies giving their morning licks.

AFTER THE FEAST

The best part of 
getting away to the cabin.

Lights out, 
starry night,
bonfire out front.

Good to see Maggie down here.
With Phil.

(Thanks, Raf.   Great pics.)

Love, no guns!

WINTER LAKES
AT FOREST PARK

The trees are still beautiful
in St. Louis' grand park,
even without their leaves.

WALK IN THE 
WINTER WOODS

Love the foggy weather.

Walking on leaves,
through the wet
Missouri oaks.

Smells good.

LEMONS READY TO PICK

My Meyers Lemon tree 
is full of ripe, plump fruit.

Such a dependable indoor
citrus producer.

Outdoors in warm weather;
indoors at a bright window.

PERFECT DAY
TO HIT THE ICE

Now that the snow has melted,
    and it's a beautiful weekend . . .

St. Louis turns out to skate the ice,
in Forest Park,
at Steinberg Rink.

(Wish my ankles were stronger.)

WHAT A DIFFERENCE
A DAY MAKES

Record snow storm yesterday.
Warm sunshine today.

Almost all the snow has melted,
and the ducks are back in the water.

BALLS IN THE SNOW

What better way to enjoy
  our recent snow . . .

than go to Laumeier Sculpture Park
to see outdoor works
    covered by fresh snow . . .

like Donald Lipski's 
"55 Steel Marine Buoys" 1994.

300-foot, linked sculpture.
Each buoy 5' diameter, 
650 pounds each.

NIGHT TIME SNOWFALL

Nothing more beautiful
than driving in the snow
at night.

No one else joins me 
this evening.

(Is why I love it so.)

HALLOWEEN HELPERS

Doing some last minute
fall tree planting,
before being put away 
till next Halloween.

(Notice the skeleton dog
still lifts his leg to pee.)

LAST LEAVES OF THE SEASON

Nothing like a sudden freeze,
to help the season's final leaves
to let go.

FIRST SNOW OF THE SEASON

And enough to make snow balls
for a snow ball fight.

Yay!

STREETS ABLAZE
IN THE CITY

I was surprised how brilliant
the fall foliage was
driving through city streets yesterday.

Transforming residential parts
of St. Louis into 
an autumn wonderland.

Wow.

AUTUMN CARPET

I love when leaves
cover the ground.

(Until it's time to rake.)

TREES CARPET THE CITY

Hardwood trees are now releasing
their colorful leaves
to carpet the city.

So pretty.
(For now.)

THE COLORS BEGIN TO FALL

This Victorian beauty
(on East Argonne in Kirkwood)
is surrounded by a carpet
of autumn leaves.

WHITE TREE BARK

SOMETHING'S ON FIRE
OUT THERE

Wait, no . . . it's the trees!
Across the street.

A brilliant shade of red.

It makes everything inside
warm and lovely.

Happy Autumn.
(If you're in the northern hemisphere.)

GOLDEN AUTUMN DAYS

Suddenly, 
the world is yellow, gold and red.

I love this part of Autumn.

Happy November!
