You're welcome Kezza, I loved taking the pics. The leaves have been my life for weeks now! I help out my Mom by raking, mulching with the lawn tractor, etc. Very time consuming but fun!

I really think that's why I love this cam so much because when it's colorless, cold, and barren here, it's lush and so beautiful in Oz.
I do love the change of seasons though. There is no perfect place to live unfortunately so we just take our lumps and frigid weather. lol

Thank you Dianne!

I left St. Paul 49 years ago and I really missed the seasons until we moved to Idaho. Snow yesterday and again Monday.
The pictures are beautiful!

Thank you!

Thank you, Judy! I would miss the seasons also if I didn't seem them change every year. I really do feel for you getting snow this early in the season! Stay warm!
