Signs of Late Summer

It’s been dry, and that’s reflected in the plant life. Dogwoods, loaded with fruit, are turning; sourwood, too. Others, especially yellow-poplar, are already dropping their leaves.  Among the wildflowers, only the composites — asters and their relatives, including this glorious Coreopsis — seem to be flourishing. Otherwise, if you’re looking for flowers you need to head for water, like the  wetland along South Carolina that’s sporting this bounty of Obedient Plant.
