We’ve had a green autumn in Oklahoma.  I don’t remember having a mild summer (well, for us), followed by a very warm fall before.  We’ve had some autumns when our trees turned brown too quickly because of the hot summer.  This year,  hmmm.

It’s November and the temperatures have been in the 70s and 80s.  I’m not sure we’ve even had a hard freeze.  About a week ago, the maple tree in my front yard burst into color…finally.  IMG_5498

This week, the temperature was almost 80 on Monday and, then, it dropped overnight to freezing.  On Wednesday, we woke up with winds and temps in the 20s.  When the wind blew, my maple dropped its leaves.  IMG_5615That was typical.  But…in my back yard, some of the trees hadn’t even turned yet and there was a flurry of leaves falling…all green.  I’ve never seen a green autumn before.  IMG_5614Oh well.  Not much to say…we went from one extreme to the other.  As Will Rogers said, “If you don’t like the weather in Oklahoma, wait a minute and it’ll change.”
