Here were the last of the late summer dahlias still in bloom and such a pretty shade of yellow tinged with peach.
Nearby was a section filled with different shades of pink and purple.
I don't know if this is a type of fuschia or something else altogether. The color combination is striking.
This bench was the perfect place to stop and take a break and to enjoy the tranquility surrounding us before moving on to navigate the steps up to the fountain.
The green leaves on this maple tree won't begin to turn golden until November, but the seed pods have already turned a bright orange-red, and it won't be long before the wind causes them to propel down from their clusters like tiny little helicopters. When my children were small they used to love to watched them slowly spinning down to the ground.
Autumn seems as though it has barely touched this garden, but the trees in other parks in the area are telling a different story. Across the way from the pool where The Investigator and I go for some of my Physical Therapy these trees have already shed many of their leaves leaving a crunchy carpet to walk upon.
And once again, I have brought a taste of autumn indoors.
If you look through the windows you can see the autumn colors both outside and in. So I leave you with this wonderful quote by Albert Camus which says everything I feel about this time of the year.
"Autumn is a second spring
when every leaf is a flower"
Thank you for stopping by. Adieu.
