We've had a fairly mild fall. Not necessarily the warmest fall I remember but the first hard freeze was quite late.
Our average first frost date is late October but this year it barely dipped below freezing until last week. I have only dumped ice out of the bird baths once so far.
Last year our first light dusting of snow was in November but this year no sign of the white stuff so far.
We've had a very wet fall. It has rained like cats and dogs but as soon as the temperature dips below freezing it stops raining.
Living in the North Carolina piedmont, our weather tends to change a lot. One day can be quite warm in the winter and another can be freezing.
I've been enjoying the clouds. I think of August and September as the months with the best clouds but our December clouds have been fantastic.
I tried to get a shot of the birds in the trees and still show the patchwork clouds. On the lefthand side of the shot below are tons of birds but you can't really see them so the shot after that one will give a close-up.
I used to always have my shots on my blog in a format you can click to enlarge but I started using up my free allotment on picsa. Therefore, lately I to use photobucket a lot and I have to put them in the size they are on the host site so you can't enlarge them.
I still have a little space on picsa but most of my current posts are done using photobucket since I have a lot of free space left there. I guess I'll stop with my holly bush whose berries are brightening up my front yard. I have four holly bushes and even though I haven't done any decorating for Christmas yet, they at least give me some outdoor Christmas cheer.
