We had snowfall on Tuesday evening in Birmingham the last time I remember snow in October was in 1989 and had a few inches this time had a light dusting. London had its 1st snowfall in October in over 70 years. Might have seen on the news the freak storm they had in devon.

Wow, can't burn leaves in very many places here  :o   Just went to visit relatives further north and most of the leaves in the higher elevations and climates have gone, but the colors are just starting to get good here.  Lots of reds this year.

It's a real November day here. We have rain, cool temps and the trees are almost bare. Remembrance Day is approaching and the weather somehow is always appropriate....sombre, wet and cool....

The leaves on the oak trees are at last shedding thier leaves and spent the whole day blowing the leaves off the greens and tees and when you cleared an area its back to square 1 with more leaves coming of the trees. The darkness starts setting in at around 4pm now so can say winter is on its way if its not already here.

Collecting leaves at work today and some oak trees still got leaves on them and the leaves are still green, they say to people you stubborn as an oak and you can see why with the oak trees holding onto their leaves in the last week of November. Its be nice for us poor greenstaff if all the leaves came down as it involves more work having to do the same area many times.

The leaves on my oak are still up- it's about 2/3 gone, but it's very tall so there's a lot left still on the tree.  Unlike Nick, we'll wait until they're all down to do the backyard.. 8)

It's hard to think about leaves when so many people have their Christmas decorations out.

Its that time of year already and Autumn is fast approaching and already there are some signs its gets darker earlier and mornings are darker. The leaves on some trees such as horse chestnut and silver birch are changing colour and mornings are alot cooler and into single figures.

The weather in the UK been fantastic this week with blue skies and warm sunshine a typical indain summer. We mosty seem to get a good september and hope it lasts a bit longer.

What a fantastic Autumn day - plus 21c - glorious sunshine, sitting in the park - just hope it stays around for a few days.

The grass is slowing down in growth and only have to cut once a week rather then twice, the conkers are ready for kids to collect and trees are changing colour and starting to shed thier leaves already. We now at work for 6:30am rather then 6am as its too dark to work at 6am. Its been a fantastic September so far with hardly any rain and nice warm days but cool nights are setting in.
