I thought they were red!!
They change colour in autumn. It’s spring here now.
ha ha yes I knew that … it still seems weird sometimes to us in the land down under ‘cos nearly all the trees are evergreens.
I didn’t know that — makes sense!
A very young maple there Mary Ann. Talking about being down under. I received a letter from an aunt in England years ago and she said, ‘Oh it must be autumn there now and all your trees will be turning.’ I wrote back and told her the eucalypts dropped their leaves on and off through the year, and they shed their bark instead. She must have thought I was taking the mickey out of her, she didn’t write back for five years. What made it worse was I told her about the native ducks being outside roosting on the wooden fence. Oh dear. 🙂
I had to go to a Cockney English dictionary to understand that one. Ha!
I forget sometimes that not everybody knows English slang. 😉
I’m usually up for learning something new. No problem. 🙂
That’s the spirit. 😉
