I had this from a friend - she lives on Long Island NY ... (Yay! I've been to Long Island.... BIG big place compared to England!)
'I was looking at your weather blog again today' she writes, 'and was reminded that I took some photos recently in and around town.
I tried to catch the foliage before the show was over. These are from a park near the village green. I did take others at another park which is a few minutes from home, it has a nice lake with fountains (not to mention plenty of Canada geese and green goose poop! Actually in Elizabethan times there was a color called goose turd green!)'
Well, today here in the UK it is bright and sunny, beautiful autumn colours - reds, golds, browns, yellows - and the grass is goose turd green!
