New York in November

This was November:

Silene capensis (native to South Africa), striped wintergreen (Chimaphila maculata) and asters.
Poss. amanita, oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus sotreatus) and another amanita
Photinia villosa [thank you, Janet], white oak (Quercus alba) and Gingko biloba.
Beautyberry (Callicarpa americana), delicious date plum (Diospyros lotus) and crabapples (Malus).

Photographed in Central Park, Highbridge Park, High Rock Park, Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

The late-month mosaics are running out of flowers, and I find it hard to accept that we already nearing the end of the first week of December. My end-of-December post will be from Cape Town, if the Internet at my parents' house is cooperating, and it is quite possible that the mosaic will not accommodate half of what I find there, in the middle of the southern summer.
