|Holding on to Summer|
I don't remember the name of this plant, but it is a survivor. Thriving through our 108 degree days of summer and now the 40 degree nights. It is extra pretty now, and will probably survive until after the first snow.
At The Woods Edge
Elves and fairies have been busy at the edge of the woods. Can you see where the path leads into the woods? I believe it may be "the one less traveled". Deer are frequently seen here, even though it is surrounded by subdivisions.
Lovely lichens on an old dogwood tree. North side mostly, of course. Fairy Work for sure! They look almost like grayish blue doilies on the limbs. Fairy cut-lace work for sure.
Dogwood with One Red Berry
Garnet red dogwood leaves are so pretty. This was the only berry left on the tree. It was gone the next day, a yummy snack for some little hungry creature.
