Default Autumn Fading

Have been roaming many autumnal trails in the East Tennessee hills recently, and noting the fading of the season. It's been a little less bright than last year's autumnal tints, but some bright highlights here and there...

Wild Yams are still quite yellow, as are some of the Sugar Maples. But many of the ferns are fading, and the Hog Peanut is nearly leafless, with open pods dropping patterned "beans" in the meadows.

Blueberry bushes on the ridgetops are nearly leafless, and Gentians are about done blooming for the year.

Autumn fields are rich with ripe seed - here are some Goldenrod seed-heads in the autumn sunshine...

Glad you found some outstanding examples of the bright highlights in the fading of the season . . . and shared them with us. Beautiful work.

Autumn fields in East Tennessee are also rich with new views of all the old barns & sheds...

Short days and frequent frosts are not ideal for insects, but there are still some "beautiful bugs" out and active - like this Great Spreadwing and this Leaf-footed Bug.

Will close with some autumnal and wintry views from nearby Buffalo Mountain.

Note that I will not be able to "stop by" here so often for the next few weeks - my Wife and I are working with our Sunday School class to fix up about 50 used bicycles to give to local children this Christmas - this will tie up much of my free time.

Hope you enjoyed the autumnal ramble, and will share your comments and critique!
