The Slide Into Autumn

The Tall Flower Meadow is well into fade.

While the forest is gearing up for show time. The Virginia Creeper that climbs so many trees is one of the first to turn.

The Blue Asters will linger well into fall.

And the colors of the Lush will fade to brown, yellow and amber. A hard frost will hurry things along.

There is no frost in the diagnosis yet. That leaves the possibility of some fall color in the herbaceous plants.

In a good season the forest can get this vibrant. But you never know what you are going to get until it gets here.

The slide into autumn

When the color green loses dominance

Is about to arrive.

Nature's Grand Symphony Orchestra has many performers, some who will play on, as some have already begun to store their instruments. A very few will solo well into winter, such as some of the grasses have shown. Your conductor's skill is so evident.

You flatter me Barry. I just wanted some winter interest so I planted me some.

It all looks so lush. I do love the smell of fall.

Love the Fall. Your flowers are so amazing.
