This week Amy has given us the challenge of the colors of Autumn. On Sunday my husband and I took our little dog for an afternoon walk. We went to take a path that leads around a storm water retention pond. As soon as we got out of the car we heard a cacophony of honking! Canada Geese! I looked out over the pond and saw an amazing sight. There were hundreds of Canada Geese!
This is a sure sign of autumn. The geese are gathering and preparing to fly South. As we walked around the pond we saw two swans. Here is a photo of one among the geese.
As we walked we found some of the other colors of autumn. The purple of the wild New England Asters. These bloom everywhere here in the autumn.
We also saw many of these charming little white aster like flowers. Not sure what they are called.
The autumn colors in the trees are just starting. They are a bit later this year as we have had lots of rain and that keeps the green going a bit longer. But as you can see in the first photo the leaves are starting to change.
Thank you Amy for this Challenge . Click here to see Amy’s photos and also, in the comments, links to other bloggers’ responses. I am also entering this post as my first response to Dawn Miller’s Festival of Leaves.
Have a happy and healthy week ahead everyone!
