In September, pie weed takes over the garden. It’s great for late season pollinators.
This female ruby-throated hummingbird is a straggler, all our others have flown south.
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.
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.
