These mums, bought last Autumn, are even more beautiful this year.

I like the play of light and shadow in this photo.

The cosmos are certainly happy that the weather is cooler,
but I miss the hummingbirds.

The first hummingbird arrived April 2, and they began to leave last week.
This photo was made on September 13.
All 5 feeders were swarming with birds that day!

The marigolds have been steady bloomers for months,
and are still going strong,

but this is the last blanket flower bloom.

On August 30, I planted radishes, carrots, and onions in large containers,
hoping to keep them above bunny rabbit's eye-level.
And they will be easy to cover when frost is expected.

Maybe frost will wait a few more weeks so that the last tomatoes will ripen.

I stopped pinching back the basil to let it bloom. I love the smell!

It is the time for Fall Festivals, State Fairs, Chili Cook-Offs ........
Go! Have fun!


  1. The smell of fall is in the air, and it's a good scent. Love your shots of all the gourds.
