Autumn has almost come and gone already, the leaves are falling now rapidly and the weather is getting quite cold. There was frost on the blackberry bushes yesterday morning and today it is raining hard. Such a nice change after a long hot smokey summer of fires in northern California.
My heart goes out to those rebuilding and who had lost there homes all throughout northern California. So many people evacuated, homes lost, lost loved ones, and to those that lost their animals. It all happened so quick. I drove through right as the fires started in Lake county. It was devastating. I hope that everyone is safe and sheltered now.
As the rains fall the leaves disappear, here is a last glimpse of Autumn this year. I love the range of colors from yellow, to orange and green.
This beautiful pink flower is toxic is all it’s parts, especially to animals.
Oleander is sually used for an ornamental plant. It grows very large, tall, wide, bushy, and blooms white and pink flowers. For years on Interstate 5, in northern California there was Oleander that was planted in the middle of the north and south interstate. Today it is being removed.
