Nature Notes

Even though it isn’t feeling like November, it looks like November outside. November has a beauty of its own. Leaves are stubbornly clinging to a few of the maples and of course, the oaks as well. We’ve experienced a giant moon this past week and it was perfectly enhanced by the bare branches. For those of in the US November is wrapped up in Thanksgiving, a favorite holiday for many.

Bob took down our water feature because if we wait too long then sometimes a pipe is frozen and that gets messy. We speak from experience. We’ve harvested all the green tomatoes and have them ripening on a bench in the garage. This is the latest we have ever had our basil in the garden although it is studded with black spots.

Why does fall/Autumn have two names?

For a long time winter was the only season that had a name. Harvest became the name for what we know call fall/autumn in English.
