Just two weeks ago, this is how my garden appeared. I'll spare you the details of each photo, but you can click on the collage photo below to enlarge and see more detail. My husband and I were headed out for a vacation, chasing fall color in the northeastern part of US and a bit of Canada, so I snapped several images of what were likely to be my last garden blooms and remnants thereof.

|Front beds, annual flowers removed and liriope cut to ground. Kousa dogwoods will soon change and drop their leaves.|
|Sassafras tree (tallest), beginning to turn color.|

How's your fall shaping up?
