The male yellow finches have begun to shed their brilliant yellow plumage in favor of their winter wear. Temperatures this morning hovered around 40 F. A few timid leaves have started to give up their green and the bald cypress in the front yard is trying to decide when it should turn bronze. Fall is here, if not officially, then spiritually.
Below are today’s bloomin’ stars.
