Onward to winter

Last week we had some unseasonally warm weather, and the large piles of leaves were very inviting to this little girl. She thought it was great fun to be buried in the leaves. And also to stomp through them. (I still like to do that once in a while--it brings back memories of childhood.)
Most of the trees are bare, but this oak sapling (which is growing in the wrong place so I will soon have to cut it out) still had some very pretty leaves. I liked the golden brown and orange colors in them.
There is not much of fall left--we are halfway through November. The days are short, the sun is low, and soon we will be enjoying the beauty of freshly fallen snow.
