It's November 16 and...the wildflowers are returning!
Here in upstate NY, we have had unseasonable weather - highs in the 50's - and, just as I thought that the wildflowers were gone for good, they have made a comeback.
On the Vestal Rail Trail, where I exercise on weekends (now that Daylight Time has ended), spouse and I were amazed to find a patch of blooming dandelions. Here's one.
Here is what I believe is a witch hazel, in bloom at one end of the Rail Trail.
And one final view of trees soon to be bare.
We have not had a truly spectacular display of foliage in several years now. But I'll gladly trade some color for no snow on the ground in November.
