Sassy seasons

Autumn gives trees gorgeous evening dresses.

Then winter comes and strips them off naked.

I blame him for the idea of autumn impression and the tree for inspiration.

Mi smo trenutno v predjesenskem obdobju.
Včerajšnji citat turške kolegice, ko je pred naju padel rdeč drevesni list: "Aaaw, the autumn's already coming" :)

predjesenko? Hočeš reči, da je še poletje?

Mi smo že v predzimskem obdobju.- To je zihr zato, k smo bolj napredni ;)

Actually, Autumn merely depletes the concentration of chlorophyll allowing the ever-present xanthophyll and beta-carotene pigments to show through. We here in the Canadas see this cavalcade of colour each fall too.
I agree with your pronouncement on winter though - and he does it without Rohypnol even!

The blogger formerly know as 'rhet'

Justin - I guess you're not Swedish enough for this :). I hear they have bizarre habits of swimming in lakes/seas when other people are wearing winter jackets.

Truefaith1963 said...

Certainly not Swedish at all then!!
I hate the cold and dark!!

So I guess the "killing" interest in your profile would correspond to biological weapons ;)?
