October has been stormy and wet. The days have been mostly grey. The gusts have blown the leaves from the trees and the rain has swollen the rivers and streams.
What remains now for color, stark against mostly naked branches, is yellow. Some leaves and the feathery needles of the tamarack.
I haven't lived in tamarack woods before. Evergreen needles that don't remain ever-green are new for me.
There was one clear afternoon this week and I seized the chance to set aside my work and enjoy the woods. I do love the woods so very much.
Green, grey, brown, red, orange and now yellow. What remains.
