Meteorological winter, here in upstate New York, started on December 1.
Time to remember the good times - the last days of fall - around November 16, that is. Brown can be beautiful, and I hope these pictures will prove that. Now, we are settling in for the winter ahead, when white snow will replace the browns of late fall. But even two weeks ago, fall color was still there to be found.
Not everyone gets into browns, so I've included some other colors. At one time I didn't appreciate the browns that come at the end of the fall color display, but I do, more and more.
Remember when? (except as noted, all pictures taken on the Vestal Rail Trail, Vestal, New York).
A late blooming forsythia.
And even a dandelion.
What are the colors of spring (for my Southern Hemisphere readers) or fall like where you live?
