Fall on the Parkway

Yesterday may have been a wash, but today is gorgeous! That's one of the things I love about Philly. Unlike Vermont where it's cold and the leaves have most likely turned by now, Philly is still nice and warm and the leaves are just beginning to turn.

This morning I woke up and did a nice 5-mile walk along Kelly Drive. It was a gorgeous day for the Head of the Schuylkill (much smaller than the Head of the Charles), so I got to watch the races as I walked. It definitely kept me entertained.

Later, after stopping by the Free Library, I sat on a bench in Logan Circle soaking up the sun. What a beautiful view.

I had my knitting with me, which happens to be quite the conversation starter. A few folks came up to me, including one person that wanted me to teach her how to knit a sock on double-pointed needles! Very random request. Still, it was such a nice time to be out.

A snapped a few shots of my neighborhood on the way back. As you can see, things are moving forward with moving the Barnes Collection to the Parkway. They put these signs up last week. This will be the new location. Note to self: get yourself to the Barnes before it moves to the Parkway.

Of course, I couldn't resist a shot of the Philly skyline (at least, my view of it) and the new Comcast Center w/ the sun reflecting off it.

And finally, there are a few trees that have begun to turn.

I love fall foliage pictures. I wonder if the leaves turn in China . . . .

Oh Robin! You've made me home sick! You're right, the leaves up in New England have already changed, and we're starting to get night time temperatures below freezing. Winter is coming, there's no denying it. I'm just hoping that when I come home to Philly for Thanksgiving, some hints of fall are still around!
