Here are a few signs of early fall at Little Red House. We leave a portion of our property unmowed. It serves as a sanctuary of sorts for the birds, and the fall harvest includes a feast for the deer.
Purple asters. Does anyone have a Canon camera? Do you notice that it does not faithfully reproduce purples and blues? Aaaargh. These are such a gorgeous purple, and not at all what you see here!
Tiny white asters. You've got to love a flower that is so generous with it's blooms!
Milkweed spores (I think!)
Grasses of some sort. Can you tell I'm not really a botanist? :)
Wild rose hips. The deer have already been at these. Soon, there will be none left.
Maple leaves just beginning to turn. These will get to be gorgeous in a few short weeks.
Goldenrod. This year I've got the mother of all hay fever, but they're still beautiful. The trees have not really begun to turn yet. I'll bring you some more photos in a few weeks when the glory really begins. But I just love the slow parade of the seasons. Don't you?
