November’s First Snow

1st snow3

November winds blew through this week, pulling many of the last leaves off the trees, and weighing those that remained down with snow.  While in more temperate climes, others may blog about the beauties of November outstripping October, in Ohio, mid November follows the bright and showy fall leaves with the stark, clear, hard beauty of branches outlined with snow and pale sky.

Some days, the sun’s rays bring visual warmth, brightening the remaining greens and turning the shadowed snow to blue.

Other days, I light candles to provide a contrast to the cool blues and greys without.
