Look! I'm even blogging on vacation (or is it "vacation"? Because this trying-to-cram-everyone-into-one-visit stuff is hard work, yo).
Here's the view from our back yard in mid-October:
As my friend who lives in Chattanooga puts it, "In the South, it's like Fall all Winter long." While the trees are bare up here in the Great White North, our trees in Charlotte only started coming into full, riotous color a couple weeks ago.
While there are many things I don't like about living in Charlotte, the six-months-of-Fall aspect isn't one of them.
