Trees and Fruit of Autumn

Part Two of November's Festival of Trees...
I couldn't resist posting some of the breathtaking colors of leaves and fruit in this colorful season.

"November comes And November goes, With the last red berries And the first white snows. With night coming early, And dawn coming late, And ice in the bucket And frost by the gate. The fires burn And the kettles sing, And earth sinks to rest Until next spring." - Clyde Watson

This is a fabulous post. When I was a child my little brother and I would ramble in a woods nearby. We found "tree spirits" and hollowed "gnomes" and were sure there were fairies about, although we never saw any. Thank you for posting these magical photos.

You have such an artful way of presenting posts, Salix! Your festival of trees is quite the collection. And I'm glad to say I haven't seen any more of that snow on my maple!
