I discovered these flowers or what look like flowers while I was out walking a couple of days ago. Any help in identifying them would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The flowers look like Nandina but they usually bloom in the spring. Can you show more of the plant especially the foliage?

Thanks so much for the reply! Unfortunately, the other pictures I took do not show more of the plant or its foliage. I will be passing the spot where I found these again on my evening walk tonight and will take another that shows more of the plant. Thanks again for your reply, I really appreciate it! :-)

Looks like Nandina foliage in the first pic too. I'd guess just an off-beam late flower cluster, lots of spring-flowering plants will produce an occasional autumn flower.

We have some spring flowering shrubs blooming here in PA too, so I wouldn't let the wrong season throw you.

Thanks to everyone for your replies! I took another picture of the plant. My apologies - it is not the best photo.

Yeah, growin, you can really see the Berberidaceae family in those blooms.
