The Last Leaves.
There aren't many leaves left on the Liquid Amber tree at the moment, and it sounds like the remainder will be blown off over the weekend with the foul weather that's forecasted. The little bit of blue sky in the background was the first seen in over a week, man I hate winter!!

beautiful vibrant colours!
I'm afraid Americans tend to become so parochial, we forget other areas of the world have changing seasons, too .................... now, as to the tree itself - 'liquid amber' - does it produce a large amount of sap, that acts as original amber in it's preservative properties?
They sure are vibrant colours, and a shame we didn't have enough sunlight to enjoy them to their fullest.
DM, yes it does produce a lot of sap, and I think they're related to the Maple.
Lovely, Gecko... nice to get a glimpse of cool weather in the midst of the Florida inferno-like summer.
Thanks Karen. I'd have the "inferno- like summer" all year round if I could.
I don't mind winter so much, but then i know what your winter is like, i'd hate it too. Lovely picture by the way.
Thanks MK. To think winter has just started ...... groan.
