When I took this series of pictures I really didn't think they would turn out .
The wind has been wicked .. and for this window of time the rain stopped and the sun came out .. just long enough to make my dear Sumac's leaves "shine" a little bit.
So much of the beautifully coloured foliage has been stripped from the trees in my area .. we have had such crappy weather with wind and rain .. I wait all year for the "show" and it decided it wasn't coming to town ?
Now for a visitor that looks a little disgruntled ? .. His opinion of the day and windy events was left on the railing .. bad boy/girl !!
I may have to resort to posting last years leaves at this rate ... BIG sigh !!
