Even though it's almost autumn there are
still lots of wild flowers blooming.
I enjoy seeing what is blooming along
the road while on my walks and I found
these beautiful asters recently.
This looks like sedum. I don't know if there is a wild variety or not.
Do any of you gardeners know what this is?
There are lots of wild apple trees growing
along the road too.
This apple dropped from the tree and was pierced on a thorn.
There are lots of cattails in the ditches. I cut some for the milk can on the front deck.

I saved this for the last.
How's this for a wasp's nest! It is huge. I don't know how we'll get rid of it and it's residents. It's up pretty high. It's at our son's house.
He's found ground nests this years too.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
We thought we'd wait until it's very cold (which won't be until late October or November and
the wasps are sleeping then spray it with
wasp spray. We'd then have to get a ladder
and try to take it down.
It's going to be quite the procedure as it's on the
second floor of the house.
So, tell me, what have you seen in the wild
lately? Do you get out for walks or drives in
the countryside? Do you take note of the
changes in the fall flora along the way?
I hope you are having a good week and that
maybe you will get out and enjoy the beauty
that is around you.
Oh! If you have any suggestions for getting
rid of a hornet's nest safely I'd appreciate them.
