The leaves depart for the winter

This blog entry is really for readers in Australia where leaves stay on the gum trees all year long. Here in the USA I am always amazed each year by how suddenly the leaves arrive and depart each year. 

About 9 am on November 19.

About 9 am on November 20. A brief storm accompanied by strong wind passed through overnight.

This event usually takes place a week earlier. Since it was delayed this year, the leaves were more spectacular.

So the last gasp of Fall / Autumn.

To be replaced by this depressing sight.

The lower leaves on the paw-paw trees hang on for a few more weeks.

Now we can see the bay off to the left. Water view.

Marianne actually enjoys seeing the bare trunks of the trees. I am less enthused.
