"It's a Beautiful Day in my Neighborhood"

      This huge poplar tree is directly across the street from me. Since it's such a large tree and has brilliant yellow leaves I couldn't resist a photo. I wanted more light from the rising sun , but that was not to be.

Many of the leaves have dropped from this tree but it's still got color
      Trees in the neighborhood are from 6 m (20 ft.)  to 14 m (45 ft.) high with some spruce at 28 m (80 ft.) Some variety of poplars were planted and are up to  30 m(100 ft.) and stand out over the whole district. The tree dwarfs the house in front of it.



    The spruce help to show the yellow of the poplar leaves.


      So it was "a beautiful day in my neighborhood."

  4. I think the red brick on the house in the first shot helps make that yellow pop as well.
    Hubby and I went for a drive Sunday and the leaves here are behind where they should be. With some cool temps this week and possible frost I think next week we'll start seeing some color. I'm going to be singing your title each time I look at the fall leaves. :)

  6. kn This is indeed a beautiful day - I would love that tree in my yard - we have a red maple and a couple of pines, so I get the bright red and rusty pine needles making a carpet on my grass, which is just starting to do so. Lovely Red :)

    1. Unless you've got a very big yard , you don't want this tree. It's a hazard in a small yard.

  7. That is definitely a huge tree! Pretty and gold as well. You do the same thing I do: convert to make sure that those of us not familiar with meters know the difference! I needed that. :-)

    1. In our case I think it's only polite when our neighbor hasn't changed. I don't use the English system at all.

  10. Those colors jump out, and it is easy to ID trees with the color they have changed
