Seasons’ change we are looking very closely at fall here in Northern Virginia. One day it was a hot summer day and the next it was cool and breezy… although the sun was shining.
I took the camera with me for a short drive one day… and found these. They are blooming all over… along the road, in the middle of fields, along fence and tree lines every where!
Coreopsis major - Greater Tickseed, Whorled Leaf Coreopsis, Forest Tickseed.
If I lived where I could see these from my windows I’m not sure I could get anything done inside the house! Such a happy riot of yellow and green!
I like that there are 2 butterflies visible… both are sulphurs (a white and a yellow). Technically a bad photograph because the horizon is skewed, but either the horizon or the plant would have to be tilted….
This was across the road…there is Buttercup, (I think), Queen Anns Lace and a small white daisy. On the left is another butterfly (a sulphur… which one I don’t know) , and just behind it, in the back ground you can see some small blurry blue dots of flowers and those are chicory.
A few miles down the road the maples are beginning to show some color. In a few weeks the color in the Shenandoah Mountains should be spectacular!!! So I am thinking these might be the last of the summer flowers.
