Autumn’s Purple

Today I’m back to my regular walk around the neighbourhood. The autumn colours and the lushness of the creek path make it one of my favourite times of the year to walk here.

And it looks like we leave autumn as we entered spring – with purple flowers. Chicory seems to be around all summer right into the late autumn months,

What’s new is the purple bell-shaped flower that is growing through the chain-link fences along the catwalk leading to the schoolyard. I’m not sure of its proper name but I love how vibrant the colour is.

As autumn starts to lead us towards winter I’ll be left without these vibrant colours. Luckily I still have some time before they disappear this year.
