On the cusp of Autumn

We are on the cusp of Autumn.



The Crab Apples are ripening.



The leaves in the Fire bush are beginning to turn.

The Rose of Sharon are in bloom.


The Red Admiral butterflies are in their second brood.



My neighbor's bushes are full of orange berries.

Their Walnut trees are full of nuts.



Red Spotted Purple butterflies are basking.



The Bronze Fennel is in bloom.

Tiger Swallowtails nectar in the Zinnias.

It looks to be an early Autumn this year.

It is just beginning.

Today is the New Sunflower Moon.

By next New Moon it will be Autumn.

Do you cook the crab apples? On both sides of the road of my school, we have lots of crab apples.

No body uses them,
