Fall leaves

It was a cool crisp start to the day this morning with a low of 42. However tomorrow morning may be a bit nippy-er.

On the way back from town this evening, the moon was bright. If you notice in this photo of the moon, the sky is two toned. The bottom part is where the sunlight is not present. The upper part still has the remnants of the last of the day’s sunrays. There is probably a technical term, if you know of such a term, let me know. Also if you are up early, a partial eclipse begins just after midnight with subtle dimming and peaks at about 3 am. The eclipse will end just after 6 am Friday morning. I won’t be up, at least not the 3am time. 🙂 Here is an article on the event, November’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Is a Once-In-a-Thousand-Years Event.

It is fall and of course the leaves are turning colors!

The blackberry leaf was awesome with the red stems!

Wing-rib Sumac (Rhus copallinum) shines bright red!

The American Elm leaf!

A holey Hackberry leaf!

The front side of Hackberry leaf was more colorful!

Greenbriar fall leaves sport multiple shades! So get out to see the fall leaves before they leave LOL!

Keep looking!

The more you know, the more you see and the more you see, the more you know.


  1. I got up at 3:15 this morning to use the bathroom and decided to take a peek at the eclipse. It was very pretty. All dark carmine to maroon in color with one bright edge on its left side (from my vantage point).

    1. Good timing! So you can say you saw the thousand year event. 🙂 I did not get up then. By the time I did, the eclipse was over.
