It rained off and on all day today here in Chicago,but I was able to take a few pictures to show.
Leaves are beginning to change color as the daylight hours lessen and nights are cooling.
Most plants have just a few blooms left. Like the Chelone/turtlehead,
A few annual coreopsis,
a Ratibiba pinnata here and there,
gallardia (it just keeps on blooming),
the hydrangea,which normally have very yellow leaves by now will continue with a presence all winter long,
and a look at the leaf strewn hobbit garden.
