Backyard Study

Ah, November.  This might be a good post to make my annual declaration of November as my very favorite month.  I've been thinking about why I love November so much. It definitely has a different feel here in Washington than it does in the Midwest; we're well into our rainy season now, although we did have a good spell of morning frost last week.  Still, there's something about this particular change of season from fall to winter that I find so beautiful. 

I'm still working away in the kitchen.  And I'm still photographing the little tree near my kitchen window, but this time from the sliding glass door.  As I'm posting, it's gorgeously sunny; the rain spell I photographed was our second of the day, but probably not our last.  A good rainbow day.

You get more rain on your side of the state then I do. Still it's been a bit wet here as well. Very lovely capture of the rain drops on the branch.

We get lots of rain here, too, but they're usually quick showers. Not those rains that stay for days on end. Your photo is truly gorgeous!

How delightful how the leave is caught there and the water dripping caught perfectly. Nice to catch up.
