Almost Autumn

What passes for summer here in Seattle hasn’t quite let go, but signs of autumn are starting to show. Today’s dog walk showed signs of the seasons shifting.

The squirrels are active, we had to stop several times to see if they would come down and play…

…alas no. Even Ginger had to sit down after a while of waiting to see.

Even after several minutes the squirrel still didn’t come down, so Ginger finally let me lead her away. Is she stubborn or persistent?

These leaves are tinged with red, indicating autumn.
This dahlia is in full, glorious bloom, with buds coming on, indicating summer.
A quince about ready for harvest, indicating autumn.
Leaves starting to change, indicating autumn.
Fuschia in full summer glory.

Leaves starting to color shift for the new season:

Late summer cone flowers and a beautiful, shiny spider’s web for autumn.
The holly berries are reddening. Autumn’s colors foreshadowing winter.

My garden is still hopeful.

Maybe we’ll see an Indian summer.

For Ragtag’s daily post: autumn

P.S. Is anyone else having problems with WordPress letting you set a featured image?
