Chapter 11, Page 3, Book 16

November's sky is chill and drear,
November's leaf is red and sear.
Sir Walter Scott

November 3rd - I’m thankful for the color of the leaves remaining on the trees.

Fallen leaves lying on the grass in the November sun bring more happiness than the daffodils

 Cyril Connolly

Fall is beautiful with all the color on the trees, they can certainly brighten up a dark rainy day, but the trees will soon be bare and the leaves left will be swirling around on the ground.  

Then begins what I call the season of brown.  What remaining leaves that are left are often oak trees and their leaves are mostly brown.  The fields in the country have been harvested and they are brown.  The leaves on the ground have all turned brown.

The season of brown is often followed by the season of gray.  Gray skies, gray shadows, and grey looking trees that are bare with no leaves.

Then comes the season of WHITE.  Snow covered every thing.  I love the first snow of the season which suddenly makes every thing bright again.  But mostly I’ll be looking toward Spring and the season of green.  Green is for growth and I’ll be making a fresh new start.

The falling leaves Drift by my window. The falling leaves of red and gold…

Nat King Cole

I too liked the first snow of the season. We are in the season of things staying the same. Not much fall visual changes here except seeing people wearing long sleeve shirts. It is cooling down though.

Oh YES! The COLORS, this is the season. Even here in Florida we get a SMALL taste of it. Nothing like our more northern states.
As always, good thoughts.
