Frequent Fall Photos
It is definitely Fall here in Nova Scotia. There are signs everywhere.
Even a leaf.
The Burning Bush (Euonymous Alata Compactus or Spindle Tree), has started to turn it's brilliant red colour.
Even the annual Coleus wants to get in on the display of colour.
I don't think this fella will make it through another winter. He's already 'cracking up' at the thought.
The grapes are starting to turn. I hope we get a chance to eat a few before the birds do.
The Magnolia's seed pods are in on the action. They are a vibrant red and look like some exotic fruit.
There are a few Clematis blossoms here and there throughout the garden. Ron has an obsession for these climbers. A good one to have.
And this centre point in the back garden, Weeping Nootka Falsecypress (Chamaecyparis Nootkatensis Pendula) whew!, has 'seeded out' with these sort of ashen blue berries.
I love this time of year. The garden is flushed with a final frenzy of colour before it is covered in a white blanket for a few months.
And this post has been brought to you by the letter 'F'.
