Are the trees near where you live bare yet? are the fallen leaves forming a carpet on the sidewalk ?
Here in Chicago quite a few of the trees in the city are still in bloom, this may have something to do with the unseasonably warm autumn we have been having. Don’t get me wrong I like that the summer weather has decided to stick around. Winter can stay away as long as it wants, however something about November days being 70 degrees is not right. I will admit that right now I would not mind being cozy in some cashmere, pulling on some boots and tying a bright scarf around my neck. When I tell folks this the response is the same “don’t worry, this is Chicago, the cold is coming, it’s coming”
