Autumn - has it arrived yet? The color? I went in search of it.
I began in my backyard.
The garden has gone "autumnal" (is that a word?). In other words, mainly green with a few flowers and some berries...eventually it'll be even more autumnal with the shrubs becoming colorful and eventual plants turning brown and dry, courtesy of a frost/freeze.
The west side of the border garden looks fall-ish for sure.
The pineapple sage has scarlet blooms.
Heading out by foot and by car, I looked for touches of autumn. There's plenty to be found; we're two-three weeks ahead of schedule here in central Iowa.
A glorious yellow tree in someone's yard
Four Mile Creek is a victim of drought; it's pretty much dry.
I love this photo! The "silk" literally glows.
The red vine in these trees is poison ivy. Look but don't touch!
