WHAT HAPPENED TO AUTUMN?

What dreadful hot weather we have!
  It keeps me in a continual state
of inelegance. 

~Jane Austen




Someone forgot
to tell my favorite
tree  that even
though temperatures
have been in the
80's it is really
autumn.
Well, at least
my tree will look
elegant for
Thanksgiving.

  1. OH, MY. Poor thing is so confused. (So am I on most days! Think I can blame mine on the weather, too?!!)

  2. You are funny! We have had the wettest weather this year and the leaves were not as brilliant as last year. I think because of too much rain.

  3. LOL, what confusion! let's just hope it does the same again in spring... here it is just the other way round: it's super super cold, even freezing at times, i sometimes think too cold for November. But we might as well just get used to it... have a great day Tracey!

  4. A continual state of inelegance! Don't you just wish that people still talked that way? Of course, if they still talked that way they would still dress THAT way... I'm just too lazy.

  6. Some of our trees are in full bloom. Nature is playing tricks on us although the temperatures are slowly going down. Looking forward to some knitting by the fire

  9. Sounds like Florida; this time of year, it can be 85 degrees one day, 45 the next.

  10. You are such a poetry buff Tracey! You always select just the right poem or quote that compliments your post perfectly. And hey, I feel like Autumn has disappeared too, except for opposite reasons...the high was 48 today here! Burrrrrrrrrrrrr.

  11. Oh if only you could hop up here for some cool air. We were in the low 20s (-5 celsius) while the sun was up today. I'm afraid to look what it is now.

  13. 80's?! Yipe! Hopefully this will pass soon. I used to get dreadfully irritated when I lived in GA and this happened. Come to think of it, I get irritated when it happens up here. ;)
