Signs of fall…

Smooth Blue Asters

Well I’ve needed a jacket or sweater the last several days when Lilly and I walked the prairie so it can mean only one thing… fall is on the way! More evidence that fall is imminent is the first asters have flowered in the prairie, the sumac is loosing its leaves and the prairie is starting to turn color. The flowering spurge has finally finished  blooming, is developing seed pods and the stems are turning red. The cooler temps are moving in and the plants are starting to react.
