Turn of the season
It's still fall here in the little city. In fact it's kind of a weird combination of fall/spring. Leaves are turning and falling because of the short light, but it's still been warm enough to confuse the spring flowers. I've seen several iris blooming.
Still, we do get a real fall here. Not as impressive as the hills of New England but we do get colors, even here in town. What we don't get here is get is water. So a sight like this from a warm fall day in Chicago is rare.
