early fall colors in Minnesota

The maples are already turning this year, and the Goldenrods, Blazing Stars, and Asters are in full bloom. Saturday saw 1/4" of rain after sunset, and Sunday was dry and cool, making for a very productive weekend finishing off the retaining wall and working on the patio beside the pond. A flock of Cedar Waxwings paused among our cherry trees and grape vines, and a chipmunk has excavated his burrow beside our waterfall, already stowing acorns for the winter.

Some general photos from the garden:
