Autumn is almost over.  By now, we usually have snow on the ground and have needed our winter jackets, gloves and hats.  This year, our November/autumn weather  continues mostly warmer than usual.  I’ve been able to enjoy being outside with my camera in hand and the only problem has been the sometimes strong winds on these nice days.


The days I shot the above two images were very windy!  The feathery fluff of the milkweed kept flying away as I was trying to capture it .

These Rose Rugosa leaves were some of the last fall colors around my yard.  Today, the branches are bare, resting till spring.

A fall haiku:

autumn weather flees
on wings of chaotic breeze
seasons eternal
