As I made my way through the garden with the compost pot this morning, I noticed that there is still some color and beauty on this late day in November.
The Japanese maple above is next to the back deck. It was an unnamed variety and it is very late to change color. It just started changing during the last week.
The Persian Parrotia (Ironwood) wins the award for holding on to the majority of its leaves. Very few have fallen and it has been brightly colored for about a month now.
