It's been ages since we've taken a walk around the pond path together. There's some mulled apple cider by the door - the spiced rum is optional. Please grab a cup and join me.
My own front yard offers this sedum (Autumn Joy) bloom in its early, pink stages of opening.
It must have rained earlier. These droplets on a broad leaf sure do catch the eye.
More proof of the recent rain.
This is my favourite spot at my local park and I've photographed it often. The subtle changes of autumn have begun to take place. Look closely to the right of the tree roots and you'll see Mr. Blue fishing the shore.
A Queen Ann's Lace, closed up tight. Lots of tiny seeds adorn each little bloom.
Here's how it looked wide open, in full bloom. Notice the tiny red flower in the center? My bloggy pal Linda pointed that out to me in one of her earlier blog posts. I never noticed the red petals before and now I look for it every time. Thanks, Linda!
And last, but not least, one of my favourite late summer to early autumn flowers - the wild chicory. Such a pretty shade of blue.
I hope you enjoyed the walk. Let's do it again sometime soon.
This is a scheduled post. In all reality, I didn't just walk around the pond because Frank and I are up at the cottage for a few days for one last visit, this year. Still, feel free to help yourself to the cider. It's virtually a bottomless cup.
