Rann, relish every minute as the long dark winter will be here soon. We want to hear/see about that too. Still amazes me.

Rann, my niece was here this weekend. I had been waiting to ask her about the concert she went to in Reykavik last summer. It was the Iceland Airwaves festival. Are you familiar with it?

Winter is definately here - this was earlier today:

herbie, nice pictures! No leaf color changes to speak of here so I really like to see them....and yes, you are discreet and I won't tell anyone.
Rann, do you have a fall season at all with leaves changing color? I might have missed that, if so, please tell me again?

Connie - there are some fall color photos in the first post of this thread ;-) It's been an unusually long fall this year ..... the first killing frost is usually in September.

Here are some more, these photos were taken the middle of October - most of the leaves have dropped now.

Acer platanoides is a bit late turning color so most years the leaves are still green when they freeze, it showed some really nice colors this year :-)

with all the rain we have had today it's a wonder all the leaves don't fall off the trees.

LISTEN UP EVERYONE if anyone has weeds full name and address can you please c-mail me the information. it seems weeds bought deb's cookbook from iuniverse and it was lost in the mail. iuniverse will not resend it blaming it on the postal service which i am sure is correct. i told weeds i want to send her another book but she is not cooperating at all. i have asked her several times for her address i did not get an answer so if anyoe here know it plese send it to me. i will not say who provided me with the information.

thanks
