Monthly Photo Challenge: Autumn’s Blush

Autumn had a very s-l-o-wwwww start here in Northern California. On Halloween the temperature was 86 degrees. The next day, November 1st, it rained. All day. Then the next. The nights finally got cold enough to push the deciduous trees into their autumn dormancy, hence the changing leaf colors.

November is the second to last month of the Monthly Photo Challenge hosted by Cardinal Guzman. How time flies! In this photo, our monthly photo star, the Chinese Maple is showing signs of autumn. Love those rain drops.

The next photo shows the Chinese Maple from the same spot as I have been photographing all year. A shy blush is beginning to adorn the leaves.

The maple is blushing a little.

This last photo shows how the blushing maple is juxtaposed against the yellow leaves of the Mulberry tree.

I guess the maple’s grand finale for autumn splendor will be in December. Until next month, here is the gallery of the previous months since January.

December will be the last entry into the Monthly Photo Challenge. Cardinal Guzman plans a wrap up post from other bloggers who have participated. That shall really be fun to see.

    1. This is a reply from your comment about your Monday visiting the sculptures…it keeps telling me the reply was unsuccessful, LOL. …I’m glad you did, it’s a cute pic! If I had a bit bigger surfboard, I would totally try it. Next time I go to Waikiki, I’m taking lessons…whenever that will be šŸ™‚ Thanks for all the likes! Looks like you are having a great time!
