I do. I give up.
Fall has arrived and I can't deny it any longer.
'Oranges and Lemons' Gaillardia blooming with some asters;
Busy bee on those asters.
The hibiscus have finished blooming.
Now we have 'Fireworks' Goldenrod, some phlox, and Japanese Anemones going at it.
Russian sage blooming with nice morning sunlight.
'Alma Potschke' aster falls over;
The girls run to the back porch when we let them out of the coop; they're anxious to eat any grapes that have fallen off the vines.
I only want to show you these little vignettes because the garden looks so tired now that September is almost over and October is sneaking its way in the door.
The weather has been cooperating though. No rain, but gorgeous days in the 80's. The sunlight streaming through the grape vines on the back porch while I lounge around and do some leisurely reading has been nothing other than lovely.
I also often have this little fur ball on my shoulder;
We've recently adopted a "half brother" of Jessie's.
Meet Felix; (My French cousin, François, suggested the name.)
His eyes really aren't that blue, must be something about the camera flash.
But he is a cutie. We were willing to adopt another one since our old cat, Ebbie, disappeared, and we thought Jessie could use a play pal.
And Jessie has been enjoying what he seems to think is his new "toy."
(Yeah, I know, I bought Jessie a bone shaped ID tag.)
There have been plenty of times we've rescued Felix from Jessie's rough housing, but they've been OK most of the time.
Hope your transitioning into fall has gone well and that you have plenty to feel pleasant about.
