Colors of the Season

 
As summer winds down more colors are becoming evident besides that of flowers.  A roadside asparagus plant shows off its colorful fruits bejeweled by water drops.   

 
Poison Ivy leaves are changing colors and some have already fallen.  The ivy seed pods seen here in the background are favored food of many bird species. 

 
Virginia Creeper is one of our earliest plants to change into its autumn color.   It's crimson red color is easy to spot now while most other plants remain green.
 
While autumn is nearly three weeks away by the calendar, the seasonal change in nature is occurring every day now.

It's a pity that it's the end of the summer but hopefully the autumn will be warm and colorful :)

Beautiful! I love the water droplets in the first shot. Fall is rushing in here, whether I'm ready or not!
