Explore Outdoors ~ Fall Colors

 Most folks, when they think of Fall Colors imagine the scarlets and fiery oranges of maple leaves, the deeper russets and shades of brown of oaks, the sunshiny yellows of aspen. Flowers have fall colors, too. If you watch a roadside or hayfield - or even the back edge of a park or playground - you might notice that the flowers you see this month are different colors than those of summer.

Six weeks ago, the flowers along our roadsides were orange daylilies and blue chicory. Now we've got an abundance of goldenrod and purple asters. 

What colors are the flowers in your neighborhood?
