AND A LONG ONE TOO
It’s November already, and the trees have just begun to shed their leaves. The leaves stayed up there, defying the winds of change, taking longer than usual to kiss the earth.
October put out a palette of the most beautiful colours imaginable. Purples offsetting yellow. Red giving Green the backdrop it deserves. Maroon making a perfect match with brown. Orange lighting up their own fire among the twigs and branches. Nature put on a fine show for us, letting us enjoy Fall for longer than most years.
Now we’re in November. And the leaves rustling underfoot tell us that old man Winter’s hibernation is over. His long, frosty fingers have just touched the dawn yet. Soon, the reach will be wider and deeper.
But why think of Winter, let’s enjoy the unusual warm weather, turn our faces to the sun, and give thanks for the four distinct seasons we enjoy. Year after year, after year.
