November’s Pleasures

November is usually a brilliant month. There is something about the fall sunlight on the colored leaves and flowers that shows them at their best. Bright contrast and details of leaves not seen with the chlorophyll present. I’m pairing the last rose of fall with the first camellia to bloom and ‘John Clayton’ honeysuckle that has some blooms all year long.  Happy Thanksgiving.
