The First Week of November

“When you go outside to enjoy the crispness of this first week of
November see if you find:

Witch Hazel blooming

Some Water Striders, Orb Weavers (spiders) and Crickets around. Some
cricket call heard mid-morning

I’ve seen some Marbled Orbweavers still hanging on.

Mammals preparing for winter

The above list is from The Piedmont Almanac – The Central Region: A
Guide to the Natural World by Dave Cook.

Some of the persimmons are tasting good. Might be a good time to find
your stand.

Get outside! The leaf color around here right now is stunning!

Have fun outside!”
