Late summer/early fall at the cabin

It’s beautiful, but tinged with a little hesitation. And colder air. All photos by Dad Victory.

pie weed

In September, pie weed takes over the garden. It’s great for late season pollinators.

Nice job, Dad: When photographing our view, the many layers of the evergreen trees often get lost into one blob. No signs of fall here, but that will come in about two weeks.

Wooly bear

This adorable bottle brush in the garden is the wooly bear caterpillar, another harbinger of fall. It will survive winter by somehow living completely frozen, and then thawing in the spring. It has a “cryoprotectant” in its blood. (See Wikipedia if you’re skeptical.)

Early hints of fall over the brook. September light is unique.
