The Beginning of Fall Colors- The Fading of Summer Flowers
It is late September and Halloween with all the festivities is just around the corner. There will be costumes and parties, and candy and favors and trick-or-treating everywhere. Although I am looking forward to the Holidays ahead, I am not quite ready to give up the warm weather. However, the striking fall colors, the cooler temperatures that will soon surround us will move everyone forward into a new season filled with excitement.
The end of summer can bring about some surprisingly free deliveries from nature, one of which I can view from my kitchen window. Inspired by curiosity, I headed out for an early morning walk around the backside of the property. There before me was an array of bees having breakfast on a what appears to be a member of the daisy family that stands approximately 4 foot tall dressed in yellow.
I was tempted to pick a bouquet for the table but knowing the bees needed the nectar for winter survival I resisted and moved along the path where I found an abundance of other smaller wild flowers not visible from my window. Hidden among the dying foliage was a variety of wild flowers, which I cannot identify except for the orange “Touch-Me-Not”. All are entering their end of life stage; I hope they return again next summer. I would love to get photos when the flowers are freshly bloomed. Their colors ranged from white, purple, blue, orange, and different shades in yellow. Colors that are found in fall decor, in costumes, candy, party favors, and more.
