A NATURE FULL OF SURPRISES

According to the statistics, we had the warmest October since 100 years ! On October 31, the weather station measured 20° (68 F) while the average temperature in Brussels is around 8°C (48F). I always remember a lot of rain grey skies and we even once had snow.

In order to remember this exceptional weather I took  pictures in a park ! The trees hadn't lost their leaves as they usually had at the end of October beginning November.











The trees have still a lot of leaves



















and the flowers are still blooming !

All these pictures have been taken on October 31, 2014. It certainly will enter in the history of an end of October beginning November !

Beautiful colours, here we only seem to get green or brown. Except the Jacarandas are out now and I love them.

Wow! Those are gorgeous photos. The weather over here wasn't as nice as that, although nice enough I guess!

Very nice photos. Even I think it is wrong for gardens in Europe to look like this at the beginning of November, but be pleased they do still look good.

Hi Gattina - it was certainly delightful last week .. sunny, dry and warm with the colours flooding us out - now we have grey! and bursts of cold rain.

Cheers Hilary

Belgium under the sun is fantastic! So many beauties everywhere to see and visit! Have fun! Here it is raining cats and dogs and particulary today! We are on orange alert with the meteo! The pupils couldn't go out today because our recreation place isn't practice for the rain! I don't tell you about my feelling after two rainy days and 26 little children 3 years old!

Your photos look like they were taken in September with so many leaves still on the trees. It has been warm here too (UK) except today when it has suddenly got cold.

Enjoy your week - Barbara

Looks like summer weather with fall color -- a pretty nice combination.
