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?

Beautiful collage.. I must admit I am loving this Ontario weather. Does that make me less a Canadian? :) B
We had snow yesterday (11/29) also. None of it stuck to the ground where I live but about 15 miles south of us the ground was white.
I love to see ferns in the woods. No snow here yet and no I can't believe it's December 1st...Where did November go?
24 days and counting for Christmas, yes i believe it. time in our lives is on fast forward, we are jumping into the future at a rapid pace. when i say or write 2011 it freaks me out because as a child the futuristic movies were in this year.. love the yellow dandelion. i love yellow wild flowers.
The fern is hanging in there, that's great. December already? Yikes!
I love all of the shades of green and the textures!
