The last of the dahlias, purple and white stripes show up crisp as the sun sets in the evening.
Limelight hydrangea putting on a new show of their fall colors as the green has turned to corals and fading blooms.
The azalea that is covered with orange flowers in the spring is covered once again in orange... orange leaves that is as it moves towards a winter nap.
Rosehips, big and red as cherries on my old fashioned rose.
The snowball tree, now completely a deep, dark red. Frames out the last of the hostas in the shade garden.
As October gets ready to fade into November.... the leaves fall. Scattering across the grass in an ever cooling breeze.
Soon the colorful fall leaves will completely give way to the gray days of fall.... in the Pacific Northwest.
Fall comes and goes, in it's coat of many colors....
