The brilliant array of autumn leaves finally came this autumn but later than usual Why? It depends on the weather. The best weather for brilliant fall foliage is a growing season of ample cool weather and a lot of sunshine. We had a lot of sunshine but no cool weather.

It seemed as if the excessively warm weather didn’t want to leave, so the leaves didn’t want to change. Perhaps next year it will get cooler earlier.

A month that behooves us to be thankful for all the blessings that God grants us. No other month on our calendar is as full as thankfulness like November!
