Sigh! Tell me bout it! What a lovely picture window, btw.

And thats why I've taken to painting the rooms :D, a long overdue project. Its the only thing keeping me going through these drab winter weeks, ingests some much needed color.

Won't these leaves turn that brilliant red in autumn ? I love the color of autumn, and want to see it some day.

beautiful photograph. Here it's only summer that is marked with a riot of colours - never get to see these shades of fall/autumn.

A, tried that route when we first moved into this house, now changed the walls to shades of the same color. Well, just 3 more months. :)

Banno, some remain yellow, some turn organge or red. The one in the pic turns yellow and then loses all its leaves. Here's a post from last year with one tree turned red -

NM, I love spring too, in India. There were a lot of trees in Bangalore in old, leafy neighborhoods that had flowers in a riot of colors.

what a beautiful picture. am in the same boat as you. starved for colour. and the trees are bare here.

Lovely photo, and surely gives a new meaning to the term 'picture window'.

But I do find the monotones of winter restful too, after all the loudness of fall colors. Nothing like the diamonds glittering in snow under moonlight, or ice sparkling in tree tops against a very blue sky!

N'ville Mom, it's lovely how you feel the words. :)

ILL, thanks a ton! You're such a sweetheart!

Ra, that pic is from October. Now the trees are bare here too. :(

Sujatha, we got a lot of the cold, but no snow yet! Would love some of those glittering diamonds myself.
