I'va always liked November. Some find it stark, or blah. Gone are the colors of autumn, but absent are the snows of winter.
I actually like the barrenness. The bark turns gray on the tress. Vistas open up that have been unseen for many months. The views are simple and clean.
It reminds me of the difference between the simplicity of the Renaissance and the gauchness Baroque period.
It is a break between the stunning, awe inspiring colors of October, and the inspiring whiteness of December snows.
Regardless whether the temperature is bracing as last year, or as mild as this year, this interim period carries its own message.
It is one of reflection, and meditation. Of preparation for the winter snows and holidays.
I guess I'm just an incurable romantic.

Well, we haven't really had any cold weather to speak of. It's been sunny and 70 degrees during the day, and a cool 40 to 50 at night. I sure hope it cools off for going to go get Christmas Trees. The trees are in full color here, so it's not really barren yet. Guess it doesn't really get like that around her til January.

I agree with you, as it is my Birth month. (16th)
I feel it is a time for Reflection, the Harvest
is over, time to be Thankful, and we know what is
coming! November can be dreary, blah, but also
can be surprising at times. That unexpected sunny
day that reaches 60 degrees. Or that First official snowfall of the season.
[My only complaint is the harvest happens so
fast with this huge machinery, so the landscape
changes very quickly--not adjusted to that yet!]
