Around this time of year orchids can be seen poking up through the leaf litter of the forests, and also along the moist peatlands(bogs) of the Adirondacks.

These rainy days highlight some of last years colors(wintergreen berries):
And with some patience we’ll eventually see shadebush -Amelanchier:
But as things open up, like these Hepatica flowers,
things seem to take on a beauty of their own(witch hobble leaves):
So let the rains fall soft upon the earth(red trillium),
…and fill our woods with the first hints of ephemeral color(Spring beauty),

As November blows in from the North and often coats the woods in white, we can take comfort in knowing that green and other shades of color still lie under the snow waiting for the big melt next year.
