Wet but NOT snowy
I woke up this morning to half an inch of snow on the grass so I guess we did not quite make it through November totally snow free. Until last night, we had had rain and overcast skies but the temperatures had been fairly mild (for Ontario in late autumn).
Largest square: while some ferns have dried and turned brown, hardier ones are still green. This one is thriving in shallow dirt between two cedar logs in a forest.
Moving clockwise. the wild cucumbers are dried and brown now (I haven't seen any that have turned lacy yet though.); WHAT?! A dandelion in flower!; a wild strawberry leaf turning reddish on moss; lichen and moss growing together; and moss on this rock turning brown in some places.
Can you believe it that tomorrow will be December 1st?
