Leaf-drop days

Blacktop tree

We had a bit of a wander-errand at mid-day, a spotty-rainy very overcast mid-day. Usually errands are a there/back event, without additional loops. Not today. Loops to cheer us with a sense of adventure? At one dead-end, we found this tree, leafless and with a blacktop skirt that is greatly reducing moisture and air to its roots, poor tree.

Oak leaf steps

Leaves have come down by the thousand in our neighborhood, too. This is about two days worth(!!), with most of them arriving by yesterday. Too wet to shuffle them off the sidewalk….

Firehouse decorations

Okay, some cheer! Our neighborhood firehouse has decorations! I wonder if the lights on the fireplug are to help train boy-dogs?
