Colorful foliage and flowers are hallmarks of the season here in Maryland.
As autumn wears on, the colorful leaves are beginnning to disappear. Patch has captured photos of the autumn foliage around the Pikesville area, including flowers and landscaping that are still hanging on until the temperature cools. But that won't happen soon. The National Weather Service calls for sun and a high of 80 degrees on Wednesday. Through the rest of the week, the high will be about 70 degrees each day, with lows in the high 50s. The lowest temperature on the horizon is 41 degrees—the expected low for Sunday. Do you have some autumn photos? Feel free to add them to the gallery.
