This humid day got it's start with clouds piling in on us, as tropical weather came our way from the south, with a promise of rain late in the day. It was a bright start to the day, but it didn't last for long.
Above, a purple thistle blossom decries the end of the season, while below yet another of the African marigold blossoms begins, with some black-eyed susan in the background.
The yellow hawkweed flower acts as a nice counterpoint to another cloud of asters, while nearby, some Virginia creeper makes it's way up the side of a pine tree, offering our first real taste of autumn foliage color.
In the front garden bed, some of those Nantucket red petunias bring a cheery reminder of the fading season.
