Autumn Leaves


The autumn leaves in France don’t have that brash, unrealistic, American defiance of death look.  That “we’ll be back!” shout of color found mostly on the east coast of the United States.  I love the season and am vaguely sorry I’m missing it.

Why the grapefruit?  I don’t know.  I liked the way it looked.  It tasted good.  Yes I’m cooking, but slowly 😉

    I found the trees at this time of year to be quite amazing in America. Prior to living there I mistakenly thought the beautiful trees in Hollywood movies were just shot near to dawn or dusk for atmospheric warm light, but in reality it’s the colour of the leaves themselves. I can see why you miss the fall back home 🙂

    No fall here in Mexico. Just “falling back” from daylight saving time. Which doesn’t coincide with the U.S., making skyping very confusing for…oh who knows how long.

  5. Autumn in New England is hard to beat. It’s one of the things I’ll miss when we move back to the UK.

    I too miss the beautiful fall colors…I’m still looking for signs of change here in Florida. 😀
