Okay, it's September for sure. But is is fall or is it still summer here in Ontario? Some people say autumn starts on September 1st, others claim the season changes at the autumnal equinox. Following, an insect and few wildflowers have opinions too:
In the largest square, a carpenter bee seems to think it's still summer. It can't get enough of that yummy nectar.
Moving clockwise, the Queen Anne's lace is looking a lot like late summer/early fall. And a field of Joe-pye weed says early fall, but the evening primrose says it's still summer. The closeup of a stalk of Joe-pye weed and the field of goldenrod are certain it's fall - the sun refused to shine the day their photos were taken.
What season do you think it is?

I'm missing summer already and it's not even fall yet. :-)
Beautiful late summer colour palette, CG. Some trees here think it's fall but, the hummingbirds think it's still late summer as they are still around. I believe that fall starts on Sept. 22 (21) and no sooner. :)
love the queen anne's lace.
Its a steamy jungle here the last week so summer! :0 )
It is incredibly humid and constantly raining around here, so it certainly doesn't feel fall-ish at all!
I vote for early fall. Heard the first leaves falling in the woods yesterday when I was walking the dog.
I enjoy viewing your collages, love them all.
A lovely collage.
Your collage is lovely!
Greetings, RW & SK
It's still warm and lovely here so I think it's summer. Nice photo collage. Thanks for visiting my blog!
I'll leave it to nature to tell me, she's usually spot on. ;-)
I dunno, do people desperately want autumn to begin on the 1st? I've always known autumn to begin on the equinox. Your photos look very much like summer to me!
The collage does a good job of showing the changes taking place. I always think summer is over after Labor Day here in the U.S. That probably comes from the fact that kids traditionally go back to school. Some places they go back even earlier these days though.
i like the queen annes lace, so beautiful..when i saw the bee, this popped in my head.
fuzzy wuzzy wasn't fuzzy wuzzy... just consider the source on that one.. part of my name is MAD
I traditionally think of autumn starting on 1 September, but it's still summer warm here. The trees are starting to turn though so fall can't be far away
Such a beautiful summer autumn! =)
We've had hot summer days the latest period until the latest days.. still I can touch a little of the summer, but the evenings with the fresh air tell me it's autumn..
Lovely shots from summer ending and fall getting ready to begin.
Great story told my your collage.. In my head, I know it is early fall, but my heart says late summer.. Michelle
I have been seeing some goldenrod here, too...and to me that shouts fall!
Beautiful images, Tina! I love the purples and yellows in your photos and mosaic. Have a happy week!
I love the slow transition!
I certainly believe this is the "End of Summer," which should be a season of it's own. It starts mid-August when I go back to work and ends sometime towards the end of September.
Love the mosaic!
Looking forward to fall is where I am. And I can see some of that in your collage.
