sunny breaks in grey skies (after 4 days of cloud and rain),
and green grass, and warm temperatures (15C)
Welcome to November.
The in-between month here in Canada.
We are in-between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The apple trees have changed colour while the rest of the trees are bare.
And in-between the seasons of fall and winter.
Yes, we have a different season here in parts of Canada where we will have a mix of nice fall weather and rainy, cold, snowy fall weather. Today was beautiful with partly sunny skies and very warm temperatures in the Maritime provinces.
I call it the in-between season.
Some trees still have leaves and the grass is very green.

Our daughter lives in Fort McMurray, Alberta and they have over a foot of snow on the ground already.
This summer they had hot sunny days with temperatures in the high 20's and low 30's (celsius!) but winter seems to have come early there this year. Other parts of the western provinces have had snow and extremely cold weather too. (I'm talking -20 C.)
I caught this red squirrel snacking on a pine cone while up in the pear tree.
Do you see the thorns? Watch your feet little guy.
I'm thinking about Christmas decorating already.
It's time to change out the orange and rust of fall and go for a more neutral palette for this in-between season.
It's time to put away the gourds and leaves but it's too early to put out Christmas.

I realize my American friends haven't had Thanksgiving yet, their weather is definitely warmer than ours, and they still have fall leaves and colours in their decor for a few more weeks.
But, I am seeing hints of Christmas in their blogs, little whispers of what they will decorate with this year, what crafts they will make.

I'm kind of glad we have an in-between season here.
It kind of goes along with the weather.
How about you? Do you decorate for the in-between season of November or do you keep fall until after the American
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
The outdoor photos were taken today.
A perfect November fall in-between season day.
