Autumn Impressions

Weather patterns are quickly changing, here in the Pacific Northwest, heralding in our typical, rainy pattern for months to come. There has only been a day here, a day there, for getting out for nature walks, and so I have pointedly taken advantage of these few days to get out and photograph the season’s changing colors before they disappear. I have literally taken hundreds of photos this past week. Below are samples of how the change in season has affected plant life, in all shapes and forms. Here are my autumn impressions.

    Are gunnera popular there? I thought that I saw them, but I can not remember where. Ours got cut back already because the foliage looks so bad this time of year. It is not even all that cold yet. They seem to know. If they do this here, they must really look bad by now there!

    Lovely captures, Peggy. I particularly loved the maple (?) with the tree trunk for a backdrop. Beautiful composition. That last one is intriguing. Not one I recognize, but gorgeous!

    • Thanks, Gunta! I really enjoyed the autumn walks and discovering so much abundance! The last photo is of the clusters of needles from the Larch tree that turns golden yellow in the fall. There was only one planted in this garden that I could find.

Thank you!
