Here are the trees outside. This was yesterday morning. It's been colder than usual, and will continue to be cold for the rest of the week. I've been making sure I get lots of cuddling by sitting next to Mom in the recliner.
Kept her out of the sewing room I have!
Update: Milo and Alfie think we should have a contest, "When the Leafs Drop Off The Tree" Contest. I'm game.
Here goes. You enter the date you think there will be no more leaves on the red tree across the street. (It's a variety of Red Maple if anybody is interested.) The red leaves here are its normal color. It usually turns BRIGHT red in autumn. This tree hasn't done that yet.
Enter your guess in the comments of TODAY's post! Comments will be accepted until the end of the day, Saturday October 17.
Every day I will post a picture of the trees across the street. On the day where the red maple has NO LEAVES on any branch of the tree, that will be THE DAY, and the cats/woofies/buns who have selected that day will be the winner.
The prize will be treats of some kind. You can expect Temptations if you are a Cat, and some woofie snack if you are a woofie. If you are a bun, I will find treats for you too. (If anybody would like to donate prizes, let me know.)
So you can probably tell that you have to be a Cat, Woofie, or Bun to enter. (Hey, it's my blog and I make the rules.)
We are just coming into "Peak Foliage Season" in our part of New Hampster. The leaves will turn colors before they fall off the tree. Wind and rain knock the leaves down faster. We are supposed to have a lot of both in the next couple of days.
The leaves will be off the trees by December for sure. Don't guess any dates in December (unless you want to lose.) They'll be off sooner than that, but I'm not giving you any more hints, either.
