…shorter days and cooler nights are leaving a mark, and the wetlands are the first to show it. Here, Ostrich ferns (the ones with the delectable fiddle heads) turn gold and brown amidst the asters and lustrife which still bloom:

Soon the temps in the high country will dip to the point where swamp maples sequester their chlorophyll and show their true colors.

As much as I love summer, I just can’t wait!

Ah, to be where the seasonal change is full of color.

Lisa, I’ll share my color with you. Just keep dropping by for your daily dose. 🙂

Hard to believe it’s already that time of year up yonder in the Lands With Actual Seasons, but I’ve also seen pictures from NC showing the beginnings of autumnal colouration.

It won’t be long, Bob. We’re a bit away from the first frost, but I feel it coming.
