I took these pictures yesterday but am writing the post today. The weather is the perfect Autumn weather- warm in the day, cooler in the evening. Trees aren’t quite in their full regalia yet but there is certainly colour to be seen.
All over the property, there are swaths of yellow.
Black eyed Susan are aggressive and prolific self seeders but they do provide beautiful colour.
Aptly named Autumn Joy Sedum has a home in most of my beds and borders.
I have various hydrangea, some of which turn a lovely bronzey rose colour. Notice Aristotle peeking out.
Russian sage is still creating a lacy purple effect beside the snowball bush.
This year has been very good for this bunch of Michaelmas daisies. Other years they have barely bloomed. I think it was our rainy August!
Most of the tall phlox is done but there are still a couple of clumps blooming.
The Burning Bush isn’t quite on fire yet, but it’s off to a good start.
Finally, this branch belongs to a neighbour’s maple tree. Just that one branch is showing bright scarlet, the rest is still quite green. I walk past it on my walks and always admire it!
How is the colour where you are? Do you have some of the same plants?
