In my neck of the woods the last few days have brought fog, low clouds and misty mornings.
Ferry fog horns and the misty mornings provided a nice backdrop for this Autumn Brilliance Serviceberry.
To my color-challenged eye, grasses look especially fetching in the misty filtered light.
Fading tan colored seed heads made a nice background for the rose colored ones that persist until frost.
All that moisture in the air, disguised as raindrops, condensed on this aster bloom.
This Fuschia, which may be ‘Gartenmeister,’ hasn’t quite finished blooming. I’m not sure how hardy it is and I may just lose it if we have a hard winter.
The color of the berries on this Cotoneaster (the exact species still stumps me) seem to deepen with dropping temperatures and so far don’t seem to register as food for birds or other critters. The misty morning and the leaves turning golden on the Chestnut in the background are nice foils for the green and red show.
The berries on my Dropmore Scarlet Trumpet Honeysuckle aren’t quite as showy as the Cotoneaster’s, but when blooming, this Lonicera is irresistible to hummingbirds
The spent dahlias discarded on a compost pile were a serendipitous discovery.
