Hi Freddy

Yep! Autumn Tongue

I've even managed to corrupt my American wife, "Autumn" is now the word she uses to describe the "Autumn" (Fall) season Biggrin

Take care, Mike

Hi Mike,

I actually like both terms for the season. "Autumn" has a dignity and majesty that just seems to go with those gorgeous leaf colors but "Fall" is so perfectly descriptive of what happens to those leaves that how can one not love that term? Wink

(More pics of your garden, please. Biggrin )

Hi Freddy

I totally agree with, "Fall" perfectly describes what is going on in the landscape...

"Autumn" has a dignity and majesty... Funny you say that, as the wife shares a very similar view, she thinks it catches the season more precisely...

I'll see what I can do over this coming weekend Biggrin

Take care, Mike

Bring those boys up here in February and you can take pictures of them walking across the lake and they can see ice shack city where all the ice fishing is done.

First time my sister made a winter trip from Texas she asked what all those little houses were and I told here that was where the poor folks lived.Biggrin

Never been ice fishing in my life. Not that I wouldn't want to try it some time, just not something you find around Chicago.

Mike, I hope you can enter some of your amazing photos in a contest. Honestly, they are as striking as the garden, itself.

Mike, I love the Burning Bush. We have two of them, a small one by the back deck and a very large one in the front of the house. They are a hardy plant and not to much seems to phase them.

Enjoying the photos.
