Seen on an island in a small private pond
We are still experiencing warm days here and cool nights. Most trees are still very green but a few are now sporting autumn colours.
Largest square: bittersweet nightshade (Solanum dulcamara) berries and shadow of the nightshade's leaves - as you can see the berries are very red now. They look tempting but could make you quite sick if you taste a few.
Moving clockwise: Bur-marigolds (Bidens); aster (not sure which one - there are many); spotted jewelweed (Impatiens capensis); New England aster (Aster novae-angliae), and seed pods of Manitoba maple (Acer negundo).
Please note that I include the botanical names because they remain the same around the world but the common names vary.
