Today, in the Northern Hemisphere, fall began early this morning. With this seasonal change, my Wednesday seasonal feature also changes its name.
For the next three months I will blog each Wednesday about "Fall Fancies".
Fall is a beautiful time in upstate New York, but for many, the joy is tempered by the knowledge that snowflakes will be falling in the next several weeks. Alas, one day, there will be frost, and our gardens will end until next year. Outdoor flowers will become a distant memory.
So, let us celebrate the flowers of the last day of summer, with these photos taken yesterday.
Pink flowers join them.
It isn't just the sumac turning early this year, though. Other trees are turning early, perhaps due to drought. It looks like we are not going to have good color this year.
In New York City, where I visited last week, I saw trees in Brooklyn already turning brownish.
But other goodies of fall are starting to show up - apples, pumpkins, fruit pies, winter squash, and more.
This is my #septemberchallenge post for today, hosted by Corinne at Everyday Gyaan.
