The bronze maple tree just off our back deck is turning spectacular colours.

The big leaf maples in the back yard have gone from a few leaves down to "dump" in a couple of days.

(21:10:2018)
The big metal "flower" makes a good leaf catcher.

(21:10:2018)

So does the bird bath.

(21:10:2018)
In the front yard the cherry tree is raining leaves too.

(21:10:2018)

The dried blossoms on the hydrangea are still pretty in the morning sun.

(21:10:2018)
The lace hydrangea, which used to be blue in the centre, still has coloured bracts too.

(21:10:2018)

And although the leaves are falling there are still lots of flowers, like this six inch dahlia.

(21:10:2018)
The first blossom on this dahlia is just starting to open!

(21:10:2018)

There are also some yellow coneflowers.

(21:10:2018)
Small borage plants keep coming up.

(21:10:2018)

And the fibrous begonias are hanging in there.

(21:10:2018)
This dahlia has had several blossom and keeps on blooming.

(21:10:2018)

Some alyssum buried in cherry leaves.

(21:10:2018)
And another fibrous begonia.

(21:10:2018)

In the back yard the clematis is covered in seed heads.

(21:10:2018)
There are still fuchsias blooming.

(21:10:2018)

And the leaves just keep coming down - until Allan mulched them with the mower and filled three and a half large bags with chopped leaves on the 22nd.

More bronze maple leaves.

And the big leaf maples two days after the picture above.

(19:10:2018)
Mornings are sometimes foggy.

(19:10:2018)

And the rising sun sets off those red leaves.

(21:10:2018)

Wind and rain brought down another batch of leaves. These won't be so easy to pick up because they are wet.
