Postcards from the Farm ~ Part 2

I have some flowers that apparently think it is spring, rather than autumn.

Buddleia


Fennel


Lilac


Not sure what has gotten into them. At least the tallow tree knows that it's fall:


And walking down by the creek I saw this old log with a shelf fungus and lichens growing on it:


The French Mulberry berries have changed to their brilliant bright purple colour.


Nandina berries are beginning to turn red.


Garlic Chives have gone to seed so that we will have even more next year.

Your pictures are just beautiful, Becky, and I felt as though I was visiting The Farm. Thank you for taking me there...

Isn't it fun and inspiring to take a good look around you and photograph the ordinary things we often just take for granted?

Becky said...

Regina, you are always more than welcome to visit.

Craig, yes! You really hit the nail on the head. I always try to look at things there with a fresh eye. How many times did Monet paint Rouen Cathedral? And it looked different every time!

Lizzy said...

Wow, those French mulberries are incredible...all beautiful photos!

Becky said...

Thanks Lizzy. Those are also called Beauty Berry. The birds love them. Do you know your USDA zone? I'm thinking they might grow where you are.

Forgot to say, that's a plant I dug up a start of from my Mom's house before she moved away from Louisiana. I'm really happy it has taken to the farm. :-)
