The art group I belong to hosts a virtual gallery each month and the prompt for November was "Color Me November". I spent ages out and about trying to come up with a variety of images that might fit. But as submission day was November 1 they were always going to be a little premature to exactly fit the prompt.
Then I was reading a friend's blog and discovered that there is an effort out there among bloggers to create a new post every day in November. H'mm, that sounds very ambitious for me. But what about if I made my own rules? I will try to combine "Color Me November" and post every second day. I'll use a combination of photos taken that very day and some from my files that I want to share.
Sounds like a plan.
Getting back to the first photo; I call that "Squirrel Nutkin was Here". I kept finding little piles of the leavings of acorns that the squirrels had feasted on. Those big acorns would be wonderful photo props I thought but sadly, the squirrels did not let me in on the secret of where to find the really big ones. Interestingly I have noticed that this Fall we seem to have way fewer black walnuts around the yard than usual (they stain whatever they land on and I can never get them open although the squirrels sure can!) but way more acorns. This likely tells us something about the coming winter. But what?

Okay, that's two for November.
