So far the autumn here has been relatively mild and sunnier than usual. The leaves on the trees are only just beginning to change colour. A landscape would not look particularly autumnal. I have chosen a photo with a leaf, which has changed colour. It is cow parsley at the side of a country lane. Other leaves around it are green.
For Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) this week a photo of something with O in the middle of the word is required. Flowers are allowed. I have chosen a photo of purple loosestrife, which was taller than my 5 foot nothing! It is still flowering, but this photo was taken a week ago.

Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) this week is for dark green colours. Those of you who follow me on Twitter may already have seen this photo. It was posted for the #WildWebWednesday hashtag, where people, who are interested in wildflowers post photos of creatures and organisms which are dependent on them.
From one of the botanists on Twitter (Moira O’Donnell) I learned that this was not an adult shield bug, but a nymph of the green shield bug. Rather handsome, don’t you think?
There is an adult shield bug here and more dark green here.
