Fall lingered late this year; the leaves turned very slowly and took their own time leaving the trees. Our first snow came long before the leaves fell, just an early morning dusting, but the backdrop of red, orange and yellow made the fat flakes look very exotic and unexpected.
It melted before I thought to take a photograph; but even now, when all the leaves have fallen, I will picture them behind the next snowfall.
