Today's flowers - Early autumn colours






A wonderful summer period ended abruptly in cold rain and nearly winterly temperatures at the beginning of September.

After two cold weeks, autumn has come, and the temperatures are warm and pleasant again.
The flowers and trees begin to wear their first autumn colours!


While the virginia creeper is showing the fist red leaves in Vienna's Stadtpark,
the Japanese Maple in Kumpfgasse is still summerly green!

I'm surprised by the first shot. It looks like the yellow leaves of wisteria but here the blooms have been gone for months.

Summer was abruptly halted here in Ontario too, Maria! But at least the flowers are living on a while longer. I really like the variety of blooms you posted for today.

This time of year brings all kinds of weather...and all different colors! I am happy to keep green in the color palette for as long as possible! There are so many vibrant colors too ~ that will awaken any gray day!
I enjoyed all your beautiful photos today ~
Wishing you JOY!
