Today it really feels like winter is settling in. The wind is blowing, the last of the leaves swirling in the air and the sky above is grey.
Color is more subtle now. It will be another month before it has reaches the high contrast of midwinter. Even though they are elegant in their neutrality, somehow the subtle tans and browns seem drab after the show of high summer and the blazing display of fall foliage. Its another signal of change–one I would not notice if I wasn’t in the garden.
