Time to put bright color away for a time and focus on the textures of an overcast November walk. Mother Earth has treasures at this time of year, subtle and nuanced.
The woods and marshland nearby provide a dose of fresh air on an overcast afternoon
My beloved reeds have set seed with billowy cotton puffs to help them fly away.
Patches of watery pond and stream mirror the drab colors and reflect only shades of gray and brown.
These spent asters give no hint of their recent lavender color.
Even this swan sees his reflection in a lake of sepia glass.
This Downy Woodpecker provided the most vivid color of the day with his tiny red hat.
Five things to love about November:
1) Exercising is easier in the cool weather.
2) There are no bugs.
3) Hot tea.
4) Giving thanks.
5) The sparkly holidays are just around the corner!
