Welcome November. . .how did you get here so quickly?
I cut some Limelight hydrangeas, maiden grass and feathery fall grasses to fill a watering can to hang in welcome on the door of the Potting Shed.
Grasses are ready to sprinkle, replacing the missing watering can rose.
Fall is late arriving here but the leaves are starting to turn and foliage is beginning to acquire a burnished and golden hue.
November’s shadows are long and her light is waning. . .I’m not ready to fall back and lose an hour of daylight this Sunday!
Plaid wellies are filled with leaves that are beginning to dress in their fall colors.
I’ve been stalking Monarch butterflies with my camera, most of the time unsuccessfully, but thrilled to find some fluttering by to stop at the milkweed this weekend!
Generation 3 and 4 monarchs don’t lay eggs, instead are fueling up for their winter migration to Mexico.
And providing some welcome fall color with wings.
You can read about the life cycle and migration of Monarch butterflies, here.
I’m drinking in the fall color and taking time to watch the leaves turn before the mayhem of the holidays begin!
Are you happy to welcome November?
