Before and After

November is half over and my first NaBloPoMo is going well. I've posted every day so far and am quite enjoying the task of thinking of something to say each day. Not that I've said anything terribly important, but just sitting down and grouping photos or writing a few sentences has been enjoyable.

We are having mild weather so far, after being treated to spectacular fall colors. I've documented some of them here. Last week was rain and wind, which put an end to most of the display, in addition to flooding many unfortunate residents of the state of Washington who happen to live close to riverbanks. I thought it would be interesting to revisit a few of my favorite photos and show how the subjects look now.

Remember the "burning" tree?

All the flames are out, with no damage to the firs.

This colorful scene at the end of my driveway appears fairly bare and drab now.

The pink dogwoods have lost all of their red leaves.

I planted my garlic today. After it spends a cozy few months under the ground, it will emerge with green shoots and lovely, large bulbs which will last us through quite a bit of the year.

And for knitting content, this one little square

has become this. There's still a long way to go.
