Fall Color at Guyles Lake

It is not a great year for Fall Color.  The drought we had last spring must have carried through showing up in so so fall color.

Guyles Lake Oct 3

Guyles Lake has very little water.

Fall color at Guyles Lake.

We went for a short ride, Chance had not been for a ride in a couple of days.

I worked on Christmas Ornaments outside until the wind and chilly 57 F or 13.8 C eh got to me.  I may have to move to the greenhouse/woodshop to finish up.

I gave up at 5:50 PM and turned the furnace on…I was just cold…and even my sweater and slippers didn’t warm me up.  I guess furnace season is here.

  1. The colors this year do seem "muted" ~ we drove through Itasca Park yesterday, there are some quite pretty areas with wilderness drive still pretty green (next weekend may be the peak). The heat in the house has been coming on in the evenings here. Enjoy your Sunday!

  2. We've started cooling down, but the leaves won't change color for another month or so and only a few of our trees even lose their leaves.

  3. Sixty feels cool to me.

    Many of our leaves have fallen from drought but a few are turning their colors to fall.

  6. I'm noticing fall colors, but I think mostly dead from drought....so far. It was 45 this morning!

  7. We have had an abundance of rain the last couple of days and a bit cooler temps so that combination made a bit of the chill go into our bones.
    Yesterday was a good day to begin cooking extra for the freezer.

  10. I read that it takes a couple of seasons (sometimes longer) for the land to recover from a drought. We had a severe one a few years ago....I think it took two years to recover. Even now, I notice full grown trees that died during that time... and are still standing, crispy brown.

  11. It will be unusual if Minnesota doesn't have some color. I don't think we will but I can tell yet for sure. I do see the birch is yellowing. Its too cold for me to go outside but will anyway later today. Barney misses his late night walks as I just haven't been able to get into the cold air.

  12. I'm beginning to wonder if we will have all brown this fall, because of the dry weather. Boy has that changed. I love the pictures in your last post. Those little girls are so cute. I love the picture of Chance and one of the girls.

  13. Our furnace ran for the first time this morning and by afternoon we had to open some doors because the sun was actually (almost) hot. Now, just past 7 P.M. it's back to chilly. Guess that's October for you.

  14. Lovely fall colours! Our heating is on too - it's been about 2 C when we wake up in the mornings.

  15. The last two days have been overcast, dreary, and a bit rainy. Fall is gradually creeping down the mountainside.

  16. We have plenty of water here in SC we'd be glad to share. :-(

  17. I bet Chance liked his ride! Been cold early. I don't like it when we go from 80s and 90s down to too chilly to open a window in the middle of the day. *sigh* You should be done with your carvings soon, though.

  18. Our leaves seem to just be drying up with little color. We have not needed heat yet but we have turned off the a/c. A couple of mornings, I have needed a sweater to go out.

  19. Always tough to turn that furnace on the first time - but then my nekkids were freezing at night so out came jammies and I finally turned on the heat. Your colors look much like ours, not much for color because it is so darned dry.

  20. I put my furnace on, turned it off again!
