Kiss sweet summer goodbye, here comes Autumn!
We heard the sigh of the first autumnal wind, and even the water had acquired a grayer hue. The sumac, grape, and maple were already changed, and the milkweed had turned to a deep rich yellow.

The yellow flowers are called Zig-Zag Goldenrod and they are a native plant.
The white blooms of the Royal Standard hosta have a lovely fragrance.
The bees are still busy in the flowers. Do you see them?

The first brightly colored leaf I found this season.
The Sweet Autumn Clematis is filled with this type of
bee and many smaller ones as well. They and I too, love the heavenly fragrant blossoms!
The gorgeous colors are emerging on these leaves I found in the yard.
Today it really felt like fall. A cool nip in the air, and the freshest of breezes blowing a few leaves from the trees really set the mood for me. We will be visiting an orchard this weekend for a little apple picking. Hope to have a few nice photos to share with you all.
Have a lovely weekend everyone! ~~ Diane
