Another week of significant changes. The weekend brought rain and wind, and it’s been breezy every since, so off flew the leaves of maple, birch and smaller shrubs. The pines have shed their old needles. Across the way, we can see more of the barn roof and white house once hidden by large maples. Oak and beech now rule the forest.
It is very cold and windy today, with beautiful clouds scudding across the sky and with snow showers forecast tomorrow, we’ll see what happens over the next week as we transition into dormancy.
