Green Leaves #SkywatchFriday

November is almost gone.  Just a few more days and the really grim weather of winter will be hitting us here in upstate New York (so far we've only had a taste of it.)

Clouds and grey skies abound - this sunrise is from November 8.

But  I never would have expected to take this picture yesterday.

It isn't the blue skies, although they aren't that common in mid November.  It's the trees with green leaves among the brown.

Green leaves. 

This never used to happen on November 21 in the Binghamton, New York area.  This isn't an isolated tree, either.  Years ago these trees (I think they are Bradford Pears) would have been bare by the first of November.

  1. Yesterday here, in Hornell and Geneseo, it was cloudy and windy albeit warm at 43*. No sun, sigh. I agree, the dark days of winter will be upon us soon, sigh.

  2. Nice shots! We haven't seen the sky or sun for weeks!

  3. Green leaves in upstate New York this time of year?

  4. We still have a bunch of green trees- and one that turned bright red overnight. I stared out my window at it for 10 minutes, just admiring its beauty.

  5. Wow!
    I'm looking outside at our bare trees. And snow-covered ground.

  6. That's weird. Was October too warm? I think I remember your October being too warm.

  7. That is very odd about the green leaves this late in the year. Lovely sky in photo #1. Have a great weekend!

  8. I'm so jealous that you still have leaves on some of your trees. We back up to woods and I'm looking at brown barren limbs.

  9. Each day is precious!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. My husband is from Rome and swears he will never live anyplace with lots of winter snow. Fortunately, our cabin only get a few dustings a year. - Margy
