On the first day of autumn I took my camera on my ride. It’s been not only a searingly hot summer here, but a very arid late summer. By September 23 it had not rained even ½” all month. Things were looking scruffy, wilted, dying. At least some things. But I wanted to see what fall flowers and interesting plants were still around. And believe me, there were some. This is a short selection, with apologies for the non-botanical captions:
I’m astonished and thankful that there’s so much beauty left to bid summer farewell.
