At Crescent Beach this weekend, sea and sky were equally grey. We found life and colour on the shoreward side, instead.
|Bindweed leaves, aging beautifully.|
|The last gasp of the buddleia.|
|Tall, prickly, tough teasels.|
|Goldenrod and tansy and seed capsules in the background. There are at least 5 flying insects on that one goldenrod head; only two are the same species. Can you find them?|
|Old man's beard (or Traveler's Joy, or ...) and dry tansy heads. The red spots in the background are rose hips.|
|Gone to seed. Birds love these.|
|And the obligatory maple leaf.|
