Halloween Tree and More Kingston Colours

OK ... this may not look too scary at the moment .. but give it a moonlit night .. with owls hooting .. bats flying around .. all sorts of background noises ... and some one jumping up out of the dark screaming BOO !!
It does have a character face though doesn't it ? .. One eye .. open mouth in surprise .. arms flailing like a windmill ... like .... hum ..... Sleepy Hollow ????
And Now Colour

HI joy, that tree would scare me if I came upon it in the dark. Your fall color is amazing.

That tree looks very scary to me!! But the other trees are very beautiful. You've got a fun blog here, the cats are adorable, and helenium is one of my favorites too!

Hi Nancy ! Thank you so much girl ! I am absolutely DRIVEN to take pictures this year because the weather has been astounding : )
The perfect Autumn !

Thank you so much Eve ! .. Helenium has been a favorite of mine and with these new cultivars .. well they are gorgeous aren't they ?

Hi Debbie ... I was thinking I should replant THAT tree in my front yeard for Halloween ... what do you think girl ? LOL
Will you come and help me do that ? haha

Andrea .. I am having a devil of a time trying to get your blog ID and date correct on my list here .. it keeps wanting to revert to your old ID and post time .. I have turned my brain inside out .. I may have to contact EBlog about it .. YIKES ! I"m still working on it girl !

I think the city "presence" reflected heat from pavement and buildings keeps the temps from dropping down enough to set "colour" in the trees there Andrea .. do you know what I mean .. so it will take longer .. and colder temps before you see a change .. I think : )
