The Chicago Files

A CANADIAN EXPAT'S EXPERIENCES AND OBSERVATIONS LIVING IN THE WINDY CITY!

Lake Michigan 2 Oct 5 2014

Well, well, what do we have here?  My calendar notes that today is October 5th; yes, I do believe no one has rearranged the numbers, traveled back in time to August, just for the thrill of it all! No, today is indeed that which my calendar acknowledges.  The photo above was taken today.  I do not see the foliage bearing its brilliance in colors of brown, orange, red, and gold.  I do see more than the odd holdout for Fall here in Chicago.  However, I do spy with my little eye a couple of ‘turnover’ trees.  Perhaps it is a brazen hardwood, don’t you think?

Lake Michigan 3 Oct 5 2014

Here is an auspicious tree in the foreground.  The amber leaves appear to show their brilliance without hesitation; unlike their fellow deciduous neighbors!

I will report back once the cornucopia of Fall colors begin to appear in front of me!  For now, I will simply wish you a super Sunday from CHItown!!

    Okay, now I’m officially envious! Here, in our great nation’s capital, there are lots of reds and oranges. Really beautiful to look at, but a reminder to find our cold fall and winter clothing and keep ’em near. Great photos, Cher, really good. 🙂
