Now that November has dawned, summer seems a distant memory. The days are growing shorter, there is less light, and the warmth is dissipating. The lush, verdant green that paints the summer landscape is rapidly vanishing. Winter, when it comes, will have its charms, at least until Christmas. After that there will be little to look forward to except a few months of cold and darkness. Still, at least in early November we can enjoy the beauty of the fall foliage, and remember the beauties of the now long gone summer.
