Frequent Fall Photos

It is definitely Fall here in Nova Scotia. There are signs everywhere.

The spiders are in a final flurry in one last effort to catch whatever they can for their brood of eggs.

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'.
