November 26: First snow

Big puffy Christmas card snowflakes drift down over the Boys Dam. Just out of sight are three big white swans.

What a difference from November first!

November 1st, Yellow and Green

Warm and beautiful; blue sky reflects in Hoffman Pond. So much is still green, but the maples are beautiful yellow, the viburnum in the swamp is pink, and many trees are losing their leaves. A trio of swans floats just upriver.

I love to look through the Portage River's clear water to see the jewel-like fall leaves lying on the bottom.
