Not only are the leaves beginning to color and drop but the wolly worms are beginning to be found crossing the road while we are out on our walks.
The Staghorn Sumac is putting up its horns and has fruit on them.
Back in the garden the later blooming sunflowers are blooming.
I even have an Anemone blooming. I was surprised that the new Anemone tomentosa 'Robustissima' has actually been showing a few blooms for over a week now.
It is blooming before the established white anemones are even setting buds. I don't know what that is all about. I guess they just don't know any better. I am pleased with it no matter when it decides to bloom.
The American Beauty Bush is even showing a bit of color.
The mums out front are showing a little color. It just makes me realize that autumn will be arriving shortly. Even the weather has given us a bit of a reprieve this weekend. It has been wonderful to be outside without feeling like one might faint of a heat stroke. I hope you are having a great weekend too. Have you seen any signs of Autumn in your garden?
