Early November’s combination of thick frost, cold rain, wet snow and high wind has taken a toll on late season color in the garden. Trees along the ledgy ridge line —particularly the delicate birch– stand naked now; having long since been stripped of their leaves.

Soon, only the garden’s bare bones will remain.
