The Cork Oak trees have donned their drab brown winter foliage. They will keep their dead leaves through the winter months, until new shoots push them off in the Spring. Maybe the old foliage protects the leaf buds from the cold?
It's time to look back over our first Provençal Autumn.
Now, there's a lot more brown in the picture, although the evergreen trees still add quite a lot of green.
no matter how small or how distant!
like this tree beside an old church.
we had a spell of mild, foggy weather
There was every shade of yellow
I walked and rode through a wonderland
Although it hasn't had the brash vibrancy of the American Fall, it has certainly been a far cry from the wet brown-ness of the Irish Autumn.
Ok Winter, do your worst!
