October - quick update

Too busy with school stuff to be profound these days, but here are some pictures from today's flawlessly gorgeous fall Chicago day...

Japanese maple, Acer palmatum 'Sango-Kaku', by the front steps

The hybrid maple in the front yard is turning red from top to bottom... I foresee very colorful mulch in my future!

Aster macrophyllus, big-leaved aster, looks even prettier in fall than it does in summer

There's nothing like sun-warmed concrete to make a doggy sleepy

I was just now going through someone's blog about how horrid the fall's handiwork was in their garden and thought I was lucky to have no such effects here in India, but looking at your Japanese maple, I think it's not all that bad after all! So beautiful and elegant it looks.
