Last weeks of summerPosted: September 3, 2016
There’s definitely a change in the colour of the foliage of trees and plants this week. I noticed it in the maple trees first — not any obvious reds or yellows yet — just a bit of a shift from the brights of summer to more muted greens. I also noticed a yellowing of the tomato plants as I walked by a community garden this week. And in my own backyard, the Echinacea are starting to droop, fade and shrivel at the edges. A sure sign of the last weeks of summer.
