Roman Fall Foliage

 

Even though it’s already December, there are still fall leaves aplenty throughout Rome. The grey clouds made getting pictures a bit hard- the colors are kind of muted- but the yellows and oranges and occasional reds are actually very bright, and the piles of downed leaves drifting on sidewalks are feet deep in places! For someone who grew up in CA, where fall foliage is pretty much limited to Sycamore trees, this plethora of color is extra exciting!
