Summer Ramblings - The Change

When I went on vacation at the end of the third week of August, it was summer.

Now, it is the end of the first week of September, and fall has arrived in the world of wildflowers.
Sure, parts of summer remain.  Although they are mostly spent now, this is what knotweed looked like when I left.

The wild sunflowers have finally appeared, a bit late, just like so many other wildflowers this year.

And, the goldenrod is still lighting up the countryside in brilliant yellow.
But fall is intruding.  The wild New York asters are blooming.
The Virginia creeper is turning red.

And look what I found yesterday.

The signs are there.  The seasons are changing.  It's only a matter of time.
