Summer walked away with nary a backward glance and autumn swept in with rain and wind that drove yellowed leaves onto the ground.
A short halt in the raindrops beguiled us into a walk around Rithet's Bog. Water depths are building and the ducks have returned.
Tall yellow grasses, fat round rose hips, and the above berries color the landscape. Would any reader know the name of the above tree/shrub? I've been looking on line without success.
edited to add: Thanks to Karen, a friend and reader from Washington State for emailing me yesterday with the suggestion of Hawthorn - yep, that's what they are! Shane from New Zealand also knew what they were. Thanks!
