November Journal, prelude to winter

Panama, NY(Zone 5a)

We've come from October here:
to a new month, wandering into the winter holidays.The birds have changed with the month, more blue jays and some tufted titmice, no more rose breasted grossbeaks or little wrens. The goldfinches have assumed their olive drab winter dress. I have some roses still blooming, and the pansies and violas are bright, but the annuals have gone down for the last time. The Christmas rose (Helleborus niger) is putting up some buds now and my chrysanthemums are bright, along with a couple of late daisies.
