How can it possibly be late September? Tomorrow is the first official day of autumn and another summer is gone... We cannot complain- we had a wonderful summer- lots of hot sunny days. I'd say it was the best summer we've had for quite a while, weatherwise. And today, the last official day of summer was beautiful - sunny and warm, a lovely day!
So I did a little walk around my gardens this afternoon... It's surprising what is still blooming, although most things are past their best and starting to look pretty bedraggled. Certainly my hanging pots and planters are beyond their best... But I still have sweet peas, snapdragons, and snakeroot, rudbeckia, zinnias, and coneflower, nasturtiums, osteospurmum, Japanese anemones and fall asters.... enough for one last bouquet. So, my dear readers, a bouquet to all of you! Thanks for following along with me...
