November is the month that brown, tan and black begin to overtake the various shades of green in nature’s palette.

Autumn’s color show has peaked and is fading.  Trees have lost many of their leaves.

Honeysuckles are still colorful- light green leaves standing out in an earth tone landscape.  Brambles offer the occasional color.

Wildflower blooms are withering, their long season in the sun coming to a close.  Seeds abound to assure future generations.

Birds and animals are acting differently.  Insects are dwindling.

Frost is now showing up, though it melts off after the morning.  Thin ice may cover water for a while.

November offers a preview of winter.  It’s a long time until the spring, though nature has beauty in all seasons.
