last days of november

osaka112611 I know it is December, but I thought I'd share some sights of the last days of November.

This one is of the gingko trees in Honmachi. I took this while I was waiting for Satoshi to finish his German language class on Saturday.

112911minoo (8) On a walk on Tuesday...the maple leaves are kind of brownish-red this year.

112911minoo (12) I saw this kodachi-dahlia (tree dahlia) in someone's yard, it was peering over their wall.

This tree must be at least 10 feet tall?!

112911minoo (14) A close-up of the flower...big and pretty.

112911minoo (15) This one is called fusentowata (gomphocarpus), it is ugly looking but I've seen it used it flower arrangements.

Those maple leaves are stunning. I miss the turning leaves living here.

We have a bit of snow on the ground and absolutely no leaves left on the trees...your photos make me want to back pedal about a month :)

I miss the warmth of Hawaii minus any humidity Deb :)

Wow Lizzy, snow! Stay warm!

The colours of Autumn in Japan are so beautiful. It is my favourite time of year along with Spring :)

Fall colors are so nice to reflect on especially with gray shades of winter around the corner. And that is why I wish it would snow already!
