Pilgrim Colors

The hues of November are Puritan brown and Mayflower russet for leaves drifting down. Clouds are a homespun of Miles Standish gray and Priscilla-blue sky tints, slipping away. The Plymouth-rock colors of earth in a blend of charcoal and sepia and old green extend into woods of maroon-swarthy; and over-spread with vines of wild-turkey and harvest red. A season of log-cabin darkness, November! A month that will, at the drop of a feather, fade the war-bonnet fires of fall to an ember with the somber banks of its Pilgrim-plain weather!
