Glittery evening ~

A row of trees on Fifth Avenue wrapped in white lights … complemented by red and yellow stop lights — the holidays are coming!



Colorful carrots ~


Carrot jubilee, November 16, 2017

Yesterday was such a whirlwind of activities that I didn’t get a picture taken, so this one is for yesterday … and … maybe there will be another one for today? We’ll see, but in the meantime, these carrots are even more beautiful than the “beautiful carrots” featured in a post from last February (here).


Ripening ~


Anticipation, November 13, 2017

You’ve heard the saying “you can’t have your cake and eat it too.” With a persimmon, you can have it as a beautiful thing to look at all the while that it’s ripening … and then you can eat it … too! 🙂


Green leaf windfall ~


Cart, leaves, November 11, 2017

Yesterday it was really windy and cold, and last night it was even colder (in the 20s!), and this morning there were piles of green ginkgo leaves all over the place! As you can see from these posts here and here, ginkgo leaves usually fall when they’re yellow and just a little later in November, as you can see from this post of exactly four years ago here, in which a ginkgo tree is only beginning to yellow. As a matter of fact, the green leaves in the cart pictured above are from that same tree!
