When the leaves start changing, this tree is the prettiest ever! The front of the tree goes first, the tips start going bright red, then it slowly moves up the leaf until it's all red. Here is the branch we can see from the living room that Greg is threatening to cut off because it's so low.
What's funny is that while the front is turning, the back is mainly green:
In the few days since Greg took these pictures for me, the red has creeped up further on the front leaves, and the back leaves have turned golden. Weird huh?
I bet I know what you're thinking.. Where's the dang kitties! Ok ok, let me show off Leo who is using the new cat width window sill. Please note that not a speck of work has continued on either the rest of the window or the cat Skywalk... sigh. And now it's starting to get cold.. Another winter with no curtains? Looks that way..
Oh, the sill standing! Here you go!
I's only half using it, mom, does it count?
Yes, Leo, it does.
Please note that it was a bright day and Leo was all shadow until I severely lightened that picture.. Here's the original:
I wish wish wish I could take pictures like some of you out there do...
PS. We blatantly stole the 'not a garden tour' idea from Spitty.. Now we need Star to head over to give him some licks and snuggles so he doesn't mind too much..
