Yes, yes, I'm behind on posting the last of my NZ pics. And there's really no update on the whole car thing (I'll tell you as soon as I know something).

So...

I think this pic perfectly encapsulates "autumn is coming to New England, and it's coming *fast*", despite today being 80 degrees. I like the shading from green through yellow to red. I picked this up on the path today at Elm Bank, the headquarters of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, in Wellesley. I ended up stopping by there and walking around instead of going to Broadmoor, nearby, as I'd originally planned. It was nice; I'd go back. I think it'll be even nicer when the fall really sets in. Except then, there won't be a ton of tadpoles infesting the big fountain in the Italianate Garden.



(This isn't a photo, it's me actually slapping the leaf down on my scanner.)

PRETTY.

Makes me a little homesick.

Definitely one of my favorite times of year here. Wish you could come visit! (It'd be harder to do now with the New Girl, huh? Although it would be loads of fun to meet her.)

Cool! Hope that you get good news about the car thing soon. *hugs*

And oh yes, just in the last three days there are glimpses of color.

Also....tadpoles in the fountain? Wow.

Well, I got *some* news. Interesting report, although it lacked what I am sure must have been juicy details. (They got to his house, and the car was there, but he "wasn't", but his *father* was, so they talked to his father. Police reports are far too dry and factual! ;-) I have my theory about what the deal likely was.)

It was the darnedest thing, because I looked at the fountain, and I thought, yuck, it's all green and scummy! And then I looked closer and I realized, TADPOLES! Scads and scads of tadpoles! And I was instantly charmed.

... I really really want to see them become frogs!

Oh man, do you think that he blamed his son and lied that it wasn't 'him'? Gah, and yet I can believe it. Anyone who would do what this guy did would make anything up to avoid responsibility. And yet, maybe it was his son? :::boggles:::

As for the tadpoles, that would be an amazing time lapse photo...all those frogs emerging!

HA! I almost did that yesterday after going out for a walk and finding myself occasionally crunching through pretty maple leaves.

I wasn't paying that much attention, but this one dropped practically in front of me, and I thought, wow, that just perfectly embodies "Advancing Fall", doesn't it? I felt it should be shared. :)
