NOVEMBER’S MONTHLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: CHANGING SEASONS 11

Monthly Photo Challenge: The Changing Seasons 11

Last month was full-bore autumn. Bright trees. Yellow, orange, scarlet, bronze. And yet … and yet …

For the past few days, the leaves have been coming off the trees in a storm.

The ground is covered with oak, maple, sassafras, birch. More than ankle-deep.

The macadam is slippery with leaves. It’s almost like ice. Before there is real ice, we have to clear the driveway and backyard. Winter is close.

Not here, not yet. It’s still warm inside and outside. So warm I turned the heat off. November it may be, but it’s short-sleeved and shorts weather.

Tomorrow, it’s supposed to drop down … into the fifties. Maybe low sixties.

For November in New England, this is not cold. Barely cool.

Maybe winter will just take a pass this year and not show up at the party. I could live with that.

  1. It’s almost winter here too and I hate it! I’m not build for living in a cold country…

    • Are any of us built for living in cold? I keep hoping maybe we’ll get a break this year and get one of those warm, snowless winters. Except we need the water. Our drought has now built into a 10″ water deficit in all the reservoirs. Without snow melt, it could become very California-like around here. So I guess that makes me rather ambivalent. We should hibernate. Wake up when it’s thawed!

    • Thank you so much 🙂 The warm has already left. It’s not real winter yet, but it’s chilly and damp and nasty. But that’s what November is like. The leaves are gone and it’s raining. The good news. It’s RAINING. We need rain!

    • It’s a “super” year for the oaks. It happens ever few years. We get a bumper crop of huge acorns, the size of chestnuts … and instead of hanging on the trees until December, the oaks dump their leaves in a big rush over just a few days. I’ve been told it’s some kind of normal cycle, but when the huge acorns coincide with a full strip down of leaves, WOW.

  6. You’ve got an excellent leaf blower here. He stopped in to peek his head into my man cave and say hi. 🙂
