Well, Fall officially arrived yesterday and the leaves are starting to fall in the woods around our house. We live amidst huge Oaks, Walnuts, Hickories and Dogwoods. This is the time of year that if you don't stay up with "leaf blowing," they will pile up to eyeball level!
We've had a few nights in the 40's, but the woods are holding onto the last bits of summer. This has been a very wet summer so everything is still pretty green.
The Trumpet Vines are on the farm fences as I go into town and they sport their bright orange bugles for the hummingbirds to enjoy right up to frost.
Ironweed may be a beautiful flower, but it can be troublesome when it takes over in a pasture. This one adorns an old wooden fence, almost as if it had been intentionally planted!
Goldenrods wave in the breeze showing off their fall colors...
Queen Anne's Lace grows in every fence row in Arkansas. It is a delicate and beautiful, but most consider it a weed! The wild flower grows happily in dry fields and is a member of the parsley family.
