Cluster of scarlet dogwood berries offer nutrients to a variety of  migrating and indigenous birds before the seasons change.
Leaves change colors and begin to fall which  signals the change of seasons.
Fallen leaves in a bed of grass are the most common symbol that autumn is upon us.

Parasol mushrooms are like the end of summer:  droopy after a rainy morning.
White crepe myrtles are fresh and fragrant to the fans attending the first football game.
