Fall marches on

Crocus kotschyanus
Some go so far as to call this species weedy, and I suppose if you take the proverbial definition of a weed as "any plant that isn't where it belongs", it might be true. But if you happen to catch it as that long autumn sunset backlights it and gives it that glow it's hard to cast it in with such ruffians as Japanese Knotweed and Armenian Blackberry.

I'm wondering if it's the fist frost tonight? The mercury has dropped precipitousely in the last few hours and is inching towards the upper 30's and it's not even 10pm yet. We will see what the hours of dawn bring.
