Signs of Fall

Sunflower

The camera is now back in town, so I can capture the early signs of fall in the garden. I really like these dark sunflowers, although I’m not sure whether the birds will like them as much as they did last year’s Russian Mammoth.

Fall pond

The Virginia creeper (which is actually native grape woodbine Parthenocissus inserta/vitacea, I believe, since it has tendrils rather than sticky disks) along the edge of the pond is starting to turn red, as is the blackhaw viburnum. However, the water lily is still blooming and the pickerel weed is still sending up the occasional flower.
