Photos 'round the 'hood

This is such an austere time of year. We've lost the explosive, colorful beauty of summer and fall, but we don't yet have the snow to bring the gentle loveliness of winter. We have instead a harsh, steely sky and nekkid trees, and brown leaves blowing around the ground. Temperatures swing by as much as 40F/24C degrees from day to night, or even from one day's high to the next.

As I have my flamingos, my neighbors around the block have their geese in house dresses:

A few aspens still have their golden leaves:

And kudos to Mike for chopping all that wood. Holy moly!
