Cold Fall day

We haven't had much fall foliage color yet. The 26 inch rain we got from Tropical Storm Faye in late August seemed to have affected the Dogwoods. The leaves all dropped off of ours, right after the rain. The other tree that does well here in the fall is the Bradford Pears. They are just starting to turn colors and should be pretty in a week or so.

We had a cold night, according to the news 26 degrees. We had a good hard freeze. Al covered our newly planted citrus trees and he winterized the RV. We filled up the bird feeders and have our usual winter visitors the Chipping Sparrows and the Gold Finches.
