Fall is turning colorful

Today we noted that the sumac is at it's peak of color. Many of the red maples are at what I think is peak, bright red, not wilted, a tad bit of green still showing under that red coat.  Found in our yard today:

Above, crab apples.

Above, the seeds of a pink star magnolia, some still plump, some already dry.

Close up of the burning bush, where I discovered berries.  Who knew??

One of my hydrangeas, muted fall colors.

Marigolds, always, ALWAYS, look their best in the cool weather of fall.
