    1. Many colors, right now almost all browns, but many different browns. If I have a light rain, then sunlight tomorrow morning, I can offer you something more like translucent stained glass.

    1. Temperature, moisture, weather, angle of the light–all make such a difference. But, yes, each day desiccation increases, actually strengthening many of the structural plants for the coming winter weather.

  1. Beautiful photos James, and a very true sentiment. I’ll admit, when I was younger, I hated the brown, sere landscape around me in winter…but the older I get, the more I appreciate it…and now I enjoy the many hues of decay almost as much as the first green shoots of spring.

    1. Scott, I think I first noticed how nature sometimes grows plants in masses while riding in the car through the Mississippi countryside as a young boy. In winter I’d see tawny fields of what I think is Andropogon virginicus (we called it broom sedge though it’s a grass), accented by occasional verticals of things like dog fennel. Of course, I didn’t translate this into a conscious love of gardening until 20 or 30 years later.
