Nature now, like an athlete, begins to strip herself in earnest for her contest with her great antagonist, Winter. In the bare trees and twigs what a display of muscle!

What a wonderful image of nature. Here, after a bit of snow and ice earlier this week, with a big wind today, the beige oak leaves raining down in a wind driven torrent. I anticipate winter in the air.
