Even with the October snow and November hurricane, some of the trees have managed to hang onto their leaves - as well as their branches!
This lovely patch of woods is framed ever so nicely by the rustic stone wall at its' base. The remains of red dahlias are a nice little touch to draw the eye towards the trees and bring the landscape together. Don't you think?
I just think it is incredible that the dahlias are still hanging in there! I'm sure they'll be dug up and set in the basement to spend their winter hibernating.
It is so nice to see these golds of autumn hanging on. Maybe they'll make it all the way to the actual start of winter!
A girl can dream...
