Hello there! I'm in a rush but wanted to touch base with the old blog, you know, so I'm just gonna pay homage to the King of Autumn now that that the leaves are mostly gone.
Here's the best shot I was able to get this year:
The King - October 23
What was interesting to me was that the outer leaves were that bright orange, but the inner ones were an awesome glowy yellow green...
I wondered how that would play out, but I didn't make it back before he was TOTALLY NAKED!
I'm hoping to have the time and energy to revive the Autumn Tree Smackdown next year. I'm thinking a nice flexible name that I can use over and over without worrying about a new acronym or numbering system would be good, like the "Sort Of Annual Rantwick Autumn Tree Smackdown", or SOARATS. I think that has a nice ring, even though for me it also brings to mind high-flying rats.
Rather than leaving you with that mental image, SnowFace and Mrs. Rantwick wanted to say hi, so here they are instead:
I am SO PLEASED that Mrs. Rantwick is the one with the buggy eyes...
