Show me your Foliage!

Recommended Posts

I just pull;ed my son's 54 out of the garage for the picture. Leaves are really behind here on Long Island, not many have changed yet, but there are a few trees in the back that started. This car belonged to my father and when he passed I offered my son's a car from his collection. My oldest son was the only one who took me up on the offer.

The bluegrass region of KY has lost a lot of  leaves or they have just turned brown. Here’s a couple of pics.

Great idea for a post, as John says the leaves here on long island are slow to turn color, and it seems to be constantly raining or overcast recently ..

Thanks Victoria for getting this going, and to all who have contributed.

Do northern Europe and southern Australia get the

same type of bright autumn color?  What other areas?

I grew up in NH which has some of the best color. Oregon has some nice color, but not as many hardwoods in the forests. Hill Country Tx even has some nice color.

Wow, some outstanding pics! Thanks especially to those of you who went out of your way to take some for this post. 

 

We we need to remember to do this next year. Keep ‘em coming!

Like many of you, I have no fall color pictures this year because we have no fall color.  Here are a couple of pictures from prior years - not great color, but decent pictures.  And the Stanley picture was taken at a Cars and Croissants gathering on New Year's Day 2016 temperature 28, and definitely no fall color!

With rain changing over to snow predicted for today I was barely able to finish grinding up the remaining fall foliage. I did however get a good top down photo of the convertible surrounded by the brilliant colors of late October in Minnesota.

Here is Cadillac's interpretation of autumn in the

colors of their 1928 line of cars.  Their well known

catalogue, "Color Creations from Nature's Studio,"

showed a line of color offerings inspired by the

colors of nature.

 

The picture shows their "Autumn" car complete with

brass-plated grille, bumpers, headlights, and exterior

hardware--very unusual for 1928:

Oh wow @John_S_in_Penna that is really interesting. Cars are such things of beauty and so much thought was put into them.

 

I feel the newer cars are not nearly as detailed and don’t have the design in colors or lines of yesterday. ?

 

It’s threads like this that make me wish we had a “❤️“ Emoji. All of these pics are outstanding! Plus I had no idea that Hawaii had a “wale” season. ? It is interesting to see what different parts of the world look like right now. Maybe our friends on other continents will show us what their “fall” looks like also? 

 

Keep posting, I’m really enjoying your pics. There are a couple of you I want to adopt though, so I can move into your beautiful homes. Lol

I guess I will take my camera with me next week when I go to China.

It must be fall there too.

An unfortunate pic of my neighbors shop from my deck last week.

He had been working on a golf cart and apparently leaked some gas onto the hot engine or possibly wiring.

He tried to pull it out of the shed behind the shop, but couldn't and fire spread to the shop itself.

He was smiling when he told me the story, as the fire was getting bigger he finally figured that he wasn't going to be able to deal with it himself and made the call.

Unfortunately the first tanker didn't show up for over 15 minutes with 1500 gallons of water.

The pumper puts out 500 GPM, you do the math, kind of disappointing.

 

If you look closely you can see some color changing it the trees back there.

It's spring in the Southern Hemisphere.

Our Australian friends think of Christmas accompanied

by the warmest weather!

I took this photo late this afternoon in same spot as yesterday with a different car, leaves are a little further along then yesterday. I think we are going to loose them all here in the Northeast, heavy rain on Sunday with 30-40 mph winds. I will try to get another car for the next photo

Here in Tasmania we have nothing approaching the display you are treated to in the NE of USA and Canada.

The photo is of our one deciduous tree, the Tasmanian Fagus, a rather stunted scrub tree which grows at altitude. We need to hike into the wilderness to enjoy the colours, which are much like yours in New England.

Dawn and I finally got to see your Autumn colours in Labrador and NE Quebec this year. Endless miles of richly coloured wilderness, with the Blueberries glowing red as ground cover. A very special sight, for us. Unfortunately, when we got back into New England the colours had barely started, so we missed the display there.

So I was out a few miles from home this afternoon. Haven’t had time to crop them yet. A bit late in the season. I think I got some good ones though. Caught my shadow in a few. #yamhilloregonwinecountry
