Autumn is yellow this year but no less stunning for that. Last year was pale and washed-out; the year before, Sandy took down all the leaves and turned them into pulp. But even Friday's downpour (poor trick-or-treaters) couldn't strip all the maples in the neighbourhood, so now we have the lovely Tokyo/ Lothlórien effect of a carpet of yellow under a canopy of the same colour. Does lovely things with the light effects, especially in the December-cold sun and blue skies of today.

Also: Your sushi has a cat on it, your argument is invalid.

The leaf effect sounds glorious.

Does NH not do the same? Common thought around here is 'Toronto is well enough but New England/ Quebec is where the *real* stuff happens.'

The leaves here are a real mix of colors - red, gold, brown, even a bit of green left. It doesn't seem to be quite the same sort of universal gold that you're describing. It is beautiful, just in a different way. (And everyone always says, when I compliment the leaves, that I missed the best of them anyhow...)

We have the same mix, and in a different year it's all patch-worky maroon and old gold and very red and purply-pink and yes, green. There's some of that still, but the yellow now predominates.
