Signs of Autumn

Things are starting to get colorful here. Today was a gorgeous sunny day and while mowing the lawn I admired some of the beauty surrounding our house.

The vacant lot next door is full of fall flowers, including some pointy spikes of goldenrod. In the heat of the afternoon, the smell of wildflowers was heavy - the same rich, wild scent I can taste in the delicious wildflower honey I love. In fact, a few honey bees were lazily moving about the various blooms.

The soft layers of color makes me want to start an impressionist painting!
Yellow is the dominant color at the moment, another week or so and we'll probably be seeing more orange and red.

Speaking of red.....

Bam! Now there' a shot of color!
