The First Sunday Walk of Autumn

The Autumnal Equinox was on Friday, and this was my first walk in the Dykeman Spring Nature Park since then. Despite the Summer-like heat and humidity today, autumnal changes and colors are moving along on schedule. Fall Asters and berries are everywhere, and the foliage colors are starting to add reds and yellows to the prevailing green. The year is aging!

Calico Asters, a prolific Fall flower
Panicled Asters, another abundant Fall bloom
Honeysuckle berries aren't edible for humans, but the birds and deer like them
A view of rolling hills up on the meadow
See? Fall color is starting to appear!
