Fall Fancies - Enjoying the Moment

My spouse has a cousin and his wife visiting our area.  They are originally from New York, moved as adults to New Jersey, and retired to Florida about three years ago.

Upstate New York decided to greet them with unseasonably warm weather and the last part of our fall season. Shall we enjoy what they are enjoying?

This was on the West Side of Binghamton yesterday.
The sun had just set, and this red is so deep, it hurts your eyes.
In years past we never would have had this kind of color in the first week of November.

In another week, this weather will probably be a distant memory.  Let us enjoy the beautiful moment while we can.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity of sharing this beauty with you on this, the 4th day of NaBloPoMo. Click on the link and enjoy other bloggers committed to blogging every day in November.

  1. A set of my Great Grandparents came from Van Hornesville, which I understand is part of Stark. In Herkimer County. Are you near there?

    1. Small world - but no, Herkimer County is about 2 1/2 hours to the northeast of where I live.

  2. I couldn't believe how hot it was here yesterday. But the sky was a gorgeous blue and the fall colors really stood out..

  3. Gorgeous colors! Here in Southern Indiana (Kentuckiana) we haven't had much color this year. I guess it has just been too dry of a year. But we are having a nice, mild week. I think that is going to change with the weekend, but I'll enjoy it while I can. I'm hanging all my laundry outside and will continue to do that until the rains and the freezing temps put an end to it! Have a nice day! :)

  4. I used to live on the west side - Grand Boulevard. I loved the large mature trees, especially at this time of year.

    1. My husband and I do some of our exercise walking on Grand Boulevard but, for some reason, I don't take many of my pictures there. I'll have to dig some of them out.

  5. So beautiful. And fall has finally found us here in SoCal. For now, at least.
