The Colours Of November

November is usually a very stark  ... cold month .... snow or not .. we expect it to be cold and unfriendly, right ?
Yet some of it's colour draws us in ... making us think it likes us ? wink wink
It is such a tease with soft clouds bathed in "warm" inviting light ... you have to know it has something up its sleeve ... right ?
The pink caters to all of us pink kind of gals ? Naughty November up to its games ... we aren't going to fall for it , right ?

November skies blow cool and warm this year .. "climate change" even if we are in full denial .
It tweaks our collective nose .. when will the full shock of it all settle in ? ...
When we are deep in the white "stuff" grumbling colourful language to ourselves and perhaps November's ears ? .. Soon we can slide into December and all of its madness ... brace yourselves !!!

I am going to miss November since I barely had a chance to enjoy it! Now on to December which I hope flies by at nuke speed. I am soooooooooo ready for January to get here and the days to begin to get longer. I hate it being dark so early! Bring on Spring!!!!(-:
Happy last couple days of November!


Hello Joy Girl, Beautiful photos. At least there is color somewhere! Can you believe we're almost in 2012? Sheesh, the time flies! Take care.

Hi, Joy!
I'd say happy belated Thanksgiving but I imagine you smart Canadians aren't recuperating from a food coma. Love your pics. Beautiful skies you've got going on there.

Love that November sky. It does have a beauty all of it's own. To me a person only has to "look" to see beauty in anything.

Thanks Karen girl : )
Some skies can be colourful but they are rare this time of year .. and yes I don't mind some white stuff here and there and it is a gorgeous foil when there are beautiful skies .. or deep blue skies : )

Cindee girl hello there : )Nuke speed ? LOL that is a good one I think I know what you mean girl ! wink wink : )
A BIG YES ! to get January over with and have the skies begin LIGHTER !! that is my worst complaint since I get up so early .. I want a nice bright sky to feel cheery with ? LOL
It is the 30th today on with December!

Gracie girl I owe you an e-mail !
And wow .. it is hard to believe that I will have to train myself to think 2012 soon ! eeekkk !

Kate girl thank you so much : )
I laughed over your pet kids sprawled out like that .. too cute and I wish they would invent a vacuum that went on silent mode is too right ! Food coma coming up again next month ? hahaha

Lola girl you are so right .. it takes some practice and patience but you can see something pretty almost every where : )

Lovely sky photos. We are home now from our November trip. I've got to catch up on my favourite blogs and get busy with some new posts.

Thanks Linda .. I have been off this week (a bit sick) so I have not been reading blogs for a while and have to catch up as well. I bet you had a great time out west eh !

I see you finally got some colour in your November sky. I watched the November weather stats tonight and we were a full 2 degrees warmer than normal and expecting December to carry on in the same vein. It's rather shocking, we're not even getting regular frosts yet.

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Marguerite girl it is shocking .. we have had a handful if that of some frots but this is weird weather .. no one can say this is not climate change .. heaven knows what next year will be like !!
