The trees are really starting to show their beautiful colors, but the flowers in the garden are fading. It's still pretty, in a subdued way.
The Rose of Sharon has a few flowers of each color left blooming. I like the big seed pods that are left.
This is one of many flowers on our Hydrangea tree. They start out white, become cream colored and then develop this old fashioned pink color. They will hang on into winter and look quite pretty hanging on the tree with snow over them.
This is a Colichum, also known as a Fall Crocus. They get leaves in the Spring that die back and nothing happens all summer. Then in the Fall, out pop these glorious flowers!
