Macro Monday-November Landscape


I love the landscape of November.
Sometimes here in rural New York we have snow of the ground that doesn't melt until April, but this year we have been blessed with a glorious Indian Summer
with the temperatures reaching into the 5o's.
(Of course snow is heading our way during this coming week)
Above, the milk weed is giving a marvelous lesson on seed dispersal.
On a walk out in the back fields, I found a small bush containing a few living remaining summery blossoms.
The bees were so happy--there had to be at least thirty bees swarming the 20 blossoms holding out against the freezing temperatures we are having during the nights.

God's creations continue to amaze me---especially when you contemplate these creations "up close".
A dandelion viewed from the front.
The same dandelion viewed from the back....I love this view.
