Thread Name: BS: where is the Fall Foliage?
Subject: RE: BS: where is the Fall Foliage?
The fall foliage is on the trees, except for the bits of it that need sweeping off our deck.

Save a couple of years in Germany, I have lived my whole life in areas so noted for fall colour that in October the roads are cluttered with tour buses loaded with leaf-peepers. I enjoy the colours on a sunny day like today, but sooner or later the wind and rain bring the leaves down in slimy heaps on the deck and the driveway.

Like they say, sic transit gloria mundi, which can be translated: Today's tourist attraction, tomorrow's housekeeping problem.

Sigh.
