Leaves, November 21, 2010

Just getting organized. And I thought they turned out.

One more after the jump, of a tree this time.

GOodness, I didn't think ANY deciduous trees had leaves left on them where you live...amazing.
And that blue/purple/green thingy...dying to know WHAT that is...
(alien spores or pods? Let's hope not)

Excellent photography..good eye.

Have a great Sunday.

Dear Bob,
These photos were taken in November--cold, but no snow or icy winds yet! The trees that have leaves now have brown leaves. Ugh.

The Martian thing is Ornamental Kale. It also comes in white instead of purple--and are about a foot in diameter. They plant them in the fall around here because they hold up. Also pansies, but they don't hold up quite as well.

Thanks for checking them out!

Ann T:
Very nice! I thought maybe something in the cabbage family for the purple/green kale.

It's cold. If I had money I'd go someplace warm for a little while!

Dear The Observer,
Warm sounds great right now! It really does.

Of course, we have not had the snow you and Bob and Chicago has had! We are just pikers and whiners around here. Or, no--that's me.

Now piking,
Ann T.

P.S. Thanks for stopping in! Happy Boxing Day to you.
