OUR WORLD - November in Waterloo
Before you start to read this post, please take an umbrella or put on a raincoat ! My part of our world is rather wet ! Or it's humid and grey or it's raining and grey. The temperatures are not normal for the season, one day we have over 10°C (50 F) and the other 3°C (37F) it's a real rollercoaster.
You have to drive mostly with you headlights.
Daylight saving or not, there is no light to save !
The streets are full of dirty leaves and you have to pay attention not to slip
Even when it's a little lighter, there is always like a light mist in the air. And of course mountains of dead leaves in the gardens.
For the first time since we live here which means 37 years, we have strange plants in our garden. When I looked out of the window I saw these two big brown spots and first thought it was leaves. But from near it turned out there were big mashrooms, which I had never seen in my life. They rather look disgusting.
and even more on the rest of the trunk of our weeping willow, a mushroom which rather looks like an enormous ulcer. It is so loathsome that I couldn't scratch it off I hope it goes away from alone !
I wonder what other surprises are to expect this year !
