I went for a walk the other morning with my camera in hand and was looking for signs of the season. September is upon us and we are still enjoying lovely summer weather this week....and hopefully for the whole month! The cows were having a siesta at noon that day enjoying the sun's heat on their backs.
Some red leaves in these branches but not sure what they are.
This one tree has totally turned yellow. There is a wild grapevine, which grows quite prolifically along our road, that has wrapped itself up and around the bottom of the tree. I wonder if it is killing the tree?
This is a wild apple tree growing in the ditch. It is huge and loaded with apples but I expect they are sour and even wormy.
This sign by the road across from the apple orchard. I'm looking forward to picking apples this fall and hopefully will get to walk through the corn maze.
The view of the St. John River valley and Sugar Island.
Goldenrod brightens the sides of the roads and fields right now.
Another bright golden yellow flower is Tansy. I picked a few stems of this to dry at home.
And of course, cattails.
And pretty sunsets. These two gliders were flying over at sunset the other night.
Pickle making season. Lady Ashburnham mustard pickles.
Pretty blooms. Endless Summer blue hydrangea.
Are you seeing signs of this new autumn season where you live yet?
We have had the best weather for a holiday weekend....and a September one at that! It's been sunny and hot (feels like 90F) the past 3 days. I know this beautiful weather can't last forever but the prognosticators say we will have a warmer than usual fall here in the Maritimes. I like that!
What a great way to end the summer and vacation for most as school starts tomorrow here in New Brunswick. We didn't go anywhere as we (Murray) had lots of chores to get accomplished before our own vacation later this week and it's going to rain the next 2 days so deck staining and mowing are on the check off list today. I'll not be posting as much as I take a bit of a break....we have 3 little boys and their parents to visit. :-)
Have a blessed week and take care.
See you back here soon.
