Colours of Autumn

We’ve had an extended run of spectacular fall colours here in Vancouver this year, because it’s been a very dry autumn. Normally the rainy season begins in September or October, and the leaves are washed from the trees before they get the chance to turn.

It’s really beautiful with all the reds, yellows, and oranges on the trees. I take a zillion photos when I go for my walks during the day.

Despite the beauty, it worries me. We live in a rain forest, and the dry season seems to extend further into the fall every year and so we get less rain. In the long term it can’t mean anything good.
