Most of the leaves in the neigbourhood are still green, but a few have taken on their autumn coat of colour. The red maple leaf is such an iconic symbol for this country.
Other reds are also found in my garden. This old rose bush has almost as many rosehips as it does thorns; the masses of white flowers have long since gone.
Change is happening all around me, summer has officially ended, and yet...
...it seems Mother Nature does not run by the calendar. My spirea is blooming above the dark leaves and producing some glowing, spring green ones!
Just goes to show, some things may end, but other fresh beginnings are always at hand.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Warm wishes to you,
