September first

We're already into early fall here in the land of the Midnight Sun. It frosted a week ago, to my shock and dismay, and the utter ruin of my tomatoes and peppers -- woe!

I went out with my camera today in search of some fall colors. There isn't much to be seen yet.

Colors starting to show up along the driveway.

This made a striking picture.

Not strictly fall-related, but the lichen on the rock piles is always interesting to look at. (The red on the rocks is natural; I'm pretty sure it's oxidized iron.)

It's so pretty. But I don't envy you your early fall...

My condolences on the loss of your tomatoes and peppers.

Nice lichens.

These are so pretty! The trees are just starting to get that late August golden cast to them here in NJ. When I was little, we used to collect some of the fresh leaves that fell and press them in wax paper in heavy books. Now so many years later, I love to open those books and look at the leaves. It's amazing how well they have stayed and preserved the moments so many years later. :)
