The signs are all around us here - leaves turning colour and starting to cover the ground, temperatures falling with each passing day, summer flowers now gone to seed. It won't be long before Jack Frost makes his first visit and settles on the pumpkins. But before we start thinking about hard frosts and white stuff swirling around us, there are still hardy plants out there that are putting on a show of colour. It's amazing how our Creator has provided such a wide variety of plants to festoon His creation - where we live, for 3 seasons, before everything gets a period of rest.
Our fields are now coloured by purple wild asters, amongst the remnants of goldenrod. And there are other wildflowers which are only now blooming - I will try to capture some of these over the coming days.

And now that I'm getting back (slowly) into the swing of things, I remembered to post my Sunset Sunday contribution - this was taken from the balcony of our villa on our last evening in Rhodes.
