Wildflowers and Autumn Leaves

September 7, 2014 garden 028

I took a quiet walk down to the Creek this morning, and enjoyed the wildflowers emerging now, late in the season, in the neglected places along the way.

They all bloom in their own season.

And like another spring, many wait until the cooler, shorter days of early autumn to open to the world.

Wildflowers and brilliantly changing leaves offered splashes of color on this cool and overcast day; this nearly silent Sunday morning.

  1. Nice walk and good pictures! I see you have the leaves changing already too! I noticed the Maple trees today have started turning orange and a little red, I guess Fall is just around the corner!

  2. Looks like a beautiful, peaceful walk, WG. What are the flowers in the 3rd image? We have fields of them here.

    • It was, Robin. A good morning to enjoy it, too. I am not sure on those lovely yellow flowers. They were growing in the unmown edge of a field, along with the last image and the Goldenrod. I’m sure Eliza can name them for us 😉 Best wishes, WG

    • Heliopsis! 😉
      I had a similar walk today – so many beautiful wildflowers. The summer really is winding down. The birds are quiet – many are gone already. It even smells autumnal with the first fallen leaves beginning to decay. Sigh – trying to get used to the idea of it! 🙂

      • Thank you, Eliza! I knew you would be able to identify the beautiful golden flowers. I observed the lack of birds here today, too. We’ve have birds flocking up already- but few were around while we were out today. And not a single eagle, egret, heron or gull on the creek… It does smell autumnal, and feels that way, too. Best wishes, WG

  3. New scene — same pretty results. 🙂 Hope you’re enjoying your time away.

    Take care, WG. ❤ Luvz and hugz, UT
