It takes a brisk wind to bring down the last of the leaves as fall reaches its end. And yesterday brought that wind, as a weather front went through. We actually had a wind warning. If you mark the end of the season by the end of fall colour, this is it.
The leaves are totally gone from our trees across the back. The tree on the right, on the back corner of our neighbour's property, is the last one with leaves on. But suddenly half of those are gone.
And here is that lone sugar Maple out on the golf course - compare this to the post on Monday last.
Soon our world will be grey tree trunks and branches silhouetted against the sky. November is here.

There is beauty in the bare limbs though that is masked with spring and summer leaves. - MargyReplyDelete
The same conditions are in place in most of the trees here now. I think I took my last autumn shot on Sunday.ReplyDelete
Yes fall is there and will soon be much colder, keep warm and enjoy the winter scenery.ReplyDelete
Yes, and the green will be white.ReplyDelete
Gone. Fast. I took November photos this week and I know we will soon see the mountains and not the leaves. Good idea you had to show the same shot from leaves to gone.ReplyDelete
Your lovely photos captured autumn's beauty and her nakedness today.ReplyDelete
Lovely colours, almost wishing it was the same here.ReplyDelete
It got down to freezing last night, for the first time this year. All the leaves are falling fast now. Many bare trees, but the occasional one that has held onto some leaves for awhile yet. :-)ReplyDelete
Lovely photos . The trees are for the best part bare but that didn't happen till after we had a frost that started them off falling like mad and then a few days of high winds but some trees are still hanging on to their leaves to . I heard on the weather channel possible snow fall over this weekend for up your way , that will make those bare trees look pretty to .ReplyDelete
Our nights are getting colder and our leaves will all have fallen in the next week or so.ReplyDelete
The view onto the golf course is lovely leaves or no leaves on the trees. I bet there will be hardy golfers out there regardless of the weather.ReplyDelete
But then comes the snow and turns everything pretty again.ReplyDelete
We had that windy front come through here too also removing many leaves from area trees. It's nice for you to have that golf course view behind you instead of somebody else's backyard.ReplyDelete
