This small aster, a native, is growing out of a crack in my driveway between the driveway and a stone wall. Above it, there are yellowing leaves of Virginia Creeper. They should be a brilliant scarlet this time of year but the drought has affected everything. The aster should also be about 3′ tall.
One of the few small trees still performing as it should. Notice how even the hostas beneath it are wilted. This is a witch hazel.
The last of the late season hydrangeas, this is a species paniculata grandiflora.
And finally the last of the tomatoes. These were picked October 22, definitely the latest I have ever picked tomatoes. The variety is Sun Gold.
