It's been a long autumn this year, an Indian summer they call it. Late October and no signs of any snow. In the twelve years we've been living here only one other Indian summer comes to mind. This sketch of a wonderful tree near the park was done a week ago.
Oops! I spoke too soon. It's just now starting to snow outside. That sort of rain/snow mix and blustery wind. I was right to think it was the last week to enjoy the Fall colours.
