“But there is always a November space after the leaves have fallen when she felt it was almost indecent to intrude on the woods…for their glory terrestrial had departed and their glory celestial of spirit and purity and whiteness had not yet come upon them.”
― L.M. Montgomery

“Her smile adds an air of enigma to her. Like a melting cup of warm dark chocolate on a November evening.”
― Ipsita Upasana,

“It was one of those early November mornings that are as beautiful as any in spring. There was gold everywhere, drifts of it on the elm tree, flakes of gold under our feet, gold dust on the hedges, liquid gold in the refracted falling light.”
― Elizabeth Goudge

“Don't wait until the fourth Thursday in November, to sit with family and friends to give thanks.
Make every day a day of Thanksgiving!”
― Charmaine J Forde

“November is usually such a disagreeable if the year had suddenly found out that she was growing old and could do nothing but weep and fret over it. This year is growing old gracefully...just like a stately old lady who knows she can be charming even with gray hair and wrinkles. We've had lovely days and delicious twilights.”
― L.M. Montgomery,

Fall Tokens


  “In November, the smell of food is different. It is an orange smell. A squash and pumpkin smell. It tastes like cinnamon and can fill up a house in the morning, can pull everyone from bed in a fog. Food is better in November than any other time of the year.”
― Cynthia Rylant


“November 1st, All Saints Day,
Dawned crisp and bright,
Golden leaves and burned-out husks of fireworks,
Lay strewn in the grass
by the smouldering bonfire.”
― Stewart Stafford

“It is also November. The noons are more laconic and the sunsets sterner, and Gibraltar lights make the village foreign. November always seemed to me the Norway of the year. ------ is still with the sister who put her child in an ice nest last Monday forenoon. The redoubtable God! I notice where Death has been introduced, he frequently calls, making it desirable to forestall his advances.”
― Emily Dickinson

“In November, the trees are standing all sticks and bones. Without their leaves, how lovely they are, spreading their arms like dancers. They know it is time to be still.”
― Cynthia Rylant,

"The thinnest yellow light of November is more warming and exhilarating than any wine they tell of. The mite which November contributes becomes equal in value to the bounty of July."

----Henry David Thoreau


   November is the 11th month of the year and the last to have 30 days.  On two of those 30 days we have National observances of honor and thanksgiving.

VETERANS DAY: November 11th was once known as Armistice Day.  In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation declaring November 11, Armistice Day in recognition of the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th when fighting ceased between warring factions of World War I.  In May of 1938, Armistice Day was declared a national holiday.  Mainly through the efforts of Raymond Weeks of Alabama, a Marine veteran of World War II, in 1954 President Dwight Eisenhower signed a bill changing Armistice Day to Veterans' recognizing all of those who had served or were serving in the military.

THANKSGIVING DAY: The fourth Thursday of December is set aside as a day of National thanksgiving.  It has had a rather storied history from the early days of the Pilgrims through the Presidency of Franklin Roosevelt.  It was Abraham Lincoln who set aside the 4th Thursday of November as the official Thanksgiving Holiday, but President Roosevelt in the mid 1930s changed it to the 3rd Thursday of November to help boost retail sales.  Popular opinion caused him to revert the holiday back to the 4th Thursday in 1941.  There it has remained since.

Things To Do In Your Garden In November

  • Plant and transplant trees, shrubs and groundcovers. 

  • Choose deciduous trees now so you can buy them for fall color while they still have leaves. 

  • ​Take root cuttings now of woody shrubs and evergreens, such as azalea, holly and hydrangea.

  • Remove weeds. Clear away as many as possible now so you have fewer to deal with next spring.

  • Add mulch. 

  • Plant spring-blooming bulbs. 

  • Dispose of diseased or pest-ridden plants.
