Slowly Fading Away

The brilliant colors of Autumn are slowly fading away as November advances. The trees are shedding furiously; the brilliantly red Maple across the street from me is bare, as is that bright yellow Maple reflected in the creek in the nature park that I showed you last week. There is still color, but it tends to be here and there rather than everywhere; Winter's gray and brown are starting to dominate.

A mushroom forest sprouting in Ripple Field
The trail sign by the north duck pond
Milkweed down is sprouting up everywhere
The leaves are mostly in drifts on the ground
But a few still hang on stubbornly to the trees
