On Sunday, I rode out to a small village near our apartment. There were several houses of more-or-less traditional style. The aluminum roofing is probably much easier to care for but not as stylish. This one did have tile, although I cropped the picture too low to be seen.
I found it interesting that the Japanese maples had the same red a month ago but are mostly bare now. My wife thinks that the oak, being closer to the ground, were kept warmer than the taller maple.
