It is Starting to Look Like Fall

The first leaves have started to fall from the Beech; the older varieties of hemerocallis are brown and tattered at their centre; and the Tricyrtis are about to bloom! In my shaded back garden I was amazed to see that practically overnight Hosta 'Yellow River' has begun its show of fall colour. When it dries up today, I'm going to see if I can get out and tidy things up. The rain and wind have thrown some of the larger plants to the ground. Looks like it'll be an afternoon of staking, trimming and grass cutting.

Thank goodness we have the beauty of fall colours to anticipate. It softens some of the longing for summer, and gives us something to look forward to.

We are indeed fortunate. My favs are the Japanese Maples that look like they're standing in pools of red and yellow after the first really hard frost.

I miss fall colors! We pretty much stay green here in Florida. I'll enjoy the beautiful colors of Fall through your blog.
