This is Day 13 in the Two Weeks of Autumn Photo Challenge and the subject is color.
Here it is, October 5 in our valley, and things are still very green. The fact that it rained last night - a very pleasant patter on the sky window -- could mean that things will be more likely to turn brown than the seasonal yellow, amber, and reds. I hope I'm wrong.
In the meantime we are still enjoying the pink Anenome and other plants facing east,
and the Zinnias in the vegetable patch,
The variety of blossoming plants on the north side of the house.
Here's some proof that fall colors have arrived: the American Goldfinch. They have all lost their bright yellow spring and summer colors. You may have to click on the image to see it there on the feeder.
And, I noticed there were a few scattered yellow leaves on the ground. I suspect by next week we will be seeing a lot more of those and our rakes, too!
I'm so proud of myself ... I finally did some fall decorating! By the front walk there are some very inexpensive (cheap) solar lights that come with seasonal inserts. I changed them! Now fall is official.
