Tasha Tudor's book, Season's of Delight, is a pop-up book about the delights of each season. The above is her Autumn page. She has two other books exclusively about the different seasons: A Time to Keep and Around the Year. In 2015 I did a post on Take Joy Society using Tasha's October photos from A Time to Keep. These are from Around the Year. . .
I took a walk around the yard this afternoon to look for signs of Autumn. There are only a few so far (note: If I've misidentified a bush or tree, please leave a comment):
|I always plant Mums every Autumn
|Some Mums return
|The Virginia Creeper aren't as red this year
|Kousa Dogwood fruit
|Linden Viburnum berries
|Ornamental Grass with Autumn plumes
|Virginia Creeper creeping across the garage
|Wild Burning Bush
|A Dogwood growing sideways
Autumn comes well past the calendar date here in Maryland so I've often posted photos from previous Autumns while I wait. . .
Here are two posts from the past about Autumn:
October 2017: Autumn Leaves
November 2018: Life
We usually take a vacation in Autumn to leaf peep. Sometimes it's just a day trip, but some places need an overnight stay or two. . .
I highly recommend:
Eagles Mere, PA (second visit)
These should hold you over until Autumn makes her full appearance!
Happy Leaf Peeping.....
