By the calendar, it's nearly winter in Uruguay but to the trees it's fall. There isn't a lot of color-- many of the deciduous trees simply fade to brown and there are a lot of evergreens, but there's an occasional maple or ginkgo with yellow leaves or a reddish oak or a purple gum. People burn small piles of leaves on the curb. The weather makes it feel like Halloween should be coming but that's a spring holiday in Montevideo.

This fall,"winter" season has started early. Tough we are not yet in "winter", it has certainly feel like it in Montevideo.

Of course, last year, I guess we had a couple of "winter" days during july/agugust with 25 C degrees... just like summer!
