Today is the final day of summer, as Autumn is welcomed into our lives once again….a season where we will enjoy fresh, crisp air, colors changing from full summer green to red, burgundy, brown, orange, yellow and yellow green. Those colors will bring a splash of excitement to our eyes and senses as we watch the daily flow out the window, and on our walks and drives through the countryside.
We’ve removed the faded summer blooming annuals in the garden table, replacing them with autumn coleus colors of deep red, burgundy, and vibrant green. The Bunny Tail grasses are turning a bit of burgundy hints on the fuzzy tops and slim, swaying grass leaves.
The zinnias has done quite well with only a few seeds planted. They have decided to explode after the heat, and the little bush is full of mini blooms, varying from a few rows of petals to many rows. We were impressed to have so many colors coming from one stem. Nature is intriguing that way.
The bee was buzzing around the blooms this evening.
And a tiny yellow lady bug…….
