December Heat Spell…

I went out for a walk this morning with the camera because I noticed the red oak out back finally decided it autumn. The predominate color is still green around here, but what do you expect when the temperature outside is 75° at 10am on a Sunday morning.

Here’s what I saw when I walked out…

I planted that tree a decade ago hoping for some fall color. I guess it worked…

What you are seeing is the result of the 40° lows we were having in the days after Thanksgiving. As I stood there taking these shots the wind kept increasing in force. That was making it more and more difficult to catch a good sharp image. I did look up and catch this image…

So finally as we start the run to Christmas (other than our daytime high today of 81°) we begin to see a little fall color on the Texas Gulf Coast…

I hope y’all have a great finish to the weekend…
