The juxtaposition of even the smallest bit of color against the ever persistent grey of the season, is part of what makes November so beautiful to me. I know the short grey days can be depressing. I like to think of these more neutral tones as huge backdrop. The structure of the woodlands is visible again. Color, what little there is, appears especially vibrant. Throw in a drizzly day to shine everything up a bit and I can't wait to get outside and poke around.
The other day I mentioned that I've been working on a couple series. This is from 'small worlds / fairy gardens.
