Shoreline Lace Leaf Maple
Photo by Lee Lageschulte

I talked to a man in New England today. He said that their trees had put on the usual spectacular show as they changed colors. But, he added, it only lasts two weeks. All the leaves are off the trees now.

I said "Ha!" to all the New Englanders in Seattle who ever complained about our weather - "You only have two seasons," they've said.

Let's invite them all out for fall tours to see our beautiful red and gold leaves. And mountains. And water. Not to mention humpback whales, orcas, harbor seals, and otters (both saltwater and freshwater). And by the way, octopi are supposed to be six feet across.

So there.
