The close of summer
Autumn will be here officially on September 23. Meanwhile nature is already looking a lot like fall.
Largest square: a double-breasted cormorant sitting on a log. Something white was floating on the water but I don't know what it was.
Moving clockwise: berries of Virginia creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia); policeman's helmet (Impatiens glandulifera) - pretty but considered a noxious weed due to it's invasive nature; aster (one of many varieties that grow here; seed heads of evening primrose (Oenothera Biennis); and berries of Solomon's seal (Smilacena racemosa).
