Easel Words: What a Week, Oak Tree & Redirect Notice

Oak Tree in October, 2018
     This week began with Monday feeling like the holiday it was, and Friday feeling like it should have been a holiday as well. Rain. Beautiful weather. Rain. Beautiful weather. Fall doesn't disappoint no matter how the foliage fares.

There is an oak tree on Main Street that I like to take pictures of each season. The oak tree's colors in the past weren't as bright as in the photo above. In the last few years, the colors have been vibrant each year. Maybe how old he tree is factors in. The oak branch habit is particularly interesting. I haven't walked downtown this year when colors are peak. I suspect by now the oak tree may be bare.

If anyone knows why the new Blogspot page goes to a "Redirect Notice page,"* when you click on a blog to read, then please let me know. Is it a matter of a website gaining ranking from the number of pages a person clicks on to get where they are going?


* On Mozilla Firefox > Upper right 3 bars > click Add-ons > In Search box type, google redirects > add google-no-tracking-url. That will remove the redirects.

    1. Hi Jan,
      Welcome!
      I am so glad I found you blog. There's lots of wonderful information there that will take the worry out of my diet menus.
      The foliage this year in Vermont has been spectacular. I haven't been out much this year to get newer photos.

  2. As I've said before I love the autumn colours. From a colour point of view in the countryside Autumn colours are my favourite.

    If I click on the heading in Reader and go to 'open in new tab' I don't get the redirect notice. Strange. Options may be different for Microsoft, I use Apple.

    1. Hi Graham,
      Thank you! No Apple here, but if there is a way in a Reader, then there might be a similar link in Microsoft. Reading List > right click over the blog post headline > Open Link in New Tab > page goes directly to the blog's post without a redirect notice.

  3. The trees here seem to be more brilliant reds than they've been the past few years. No clue why that is, but I'm happy to see them, even though we haven't been able to take any long drives up north where they are even more spectacular.
    As for the 'redirect' issue - I have no clue. It's annoying.

    1. Hi Maryanne,
      I read that low near freezing night and warm day temperatures, stress from drought can increase red in foliage. There has been near frosts, and light frost, no hard frost as yet at this lower elevation. Yesterday, there was a blush of white on some mountain tops.

      In Microsoft windows...Over the blog's post title > right click > Open in New Tab > next tab/page opens the blog's post without a redirect.

  4. I'm afraid the trees here will have lost most of their leaves before much fall color. Strange weather. My garden is still in a flush of color, but leaves are falling brown and dull from trees.

    1. Hi Jenclair,
      Y'all have had so much rain, the trees must be still shaking it off.

  6. There's no such thing as trees turning colour here. Have no idea about the redirect notice. I don't get it for every blog.

    1. Hi Kathy,
      Thank you. I found the add on to remove the redirect. I figure if not everyone sees that happen, then there must be an app to remove it.

    1. Hi William,
      Now that I removed the redirect, using Blogger is smoother.

  11. So beautiful. We have mostly oaks in our woods. They are such strong handsome trees. Don't know about the redirect notice...but I get it when I go to my reading list. Always something new with eblogger:)!
