The colours are ever so palpable all across the nature in my surroundings. It is now only a matter of a couple weeks before the foliage has lost every trace of green. It has been a calm Sunday weather-wise. There is almost no wind, which is very unusual and the sun is there in intervals. This is a quiet a difference considering that last week stormy weather passed through Denmark. It did some damage, even to our front yard, where it ripped off branches from a magnificent ash. It is indeed a shame as that tree displayed the most stunning red foliage in the end of October. Most of the tree still stands, as seen on the picture on the right, but it can not be compared to its former glory.
The branches that came down has been collected and are now lying in a pile in front of our birch tree. They will not go to waste but will be cut in a few weeks (hopefully with a help of a strong, handsome Irishman) into smaller pieces and will be stored on my terrace. Next year, after drying, the branches will become a great fire wood for my fireplace.
Below yet another update on our majestic birch tree. Most of its golden leaves were ripped away after last weeks storm, still, the colour countdown of its foliage turn is in full progress.
