My wildflowers are throwing caution ( and seed pods) to the wind right now-blooming as much as possible before the soon-to-come winter. Roses, gaillardia, daisies of funky varieties, Russian sage, lantana, cosmos, coral bells and sedum are all showing off as well. I have a zillion hundred-pound white pumpkins ( my estimates, lol) to decorate with soon, too, so all is well.
We've already seen lots of geese goin' south...a sure sign, our 90 year old friend Maryann tells us, of a colder than usual winter. Thanks MA. Really. You rock. :P
But right now, it's clear blue skies, daytime temps in the low 80s, and enough rain last week to test the new part of the roof over the vestibule ( yea! no leaks!) and watered everything the way that only rain can.
I am not a fan of winter, but be(ing) here now is pretty great.
Garden tomatoes ripening on the sill-just because I like to think that the original owners did this too.
Happy Fall! ( and for those of you who lived in TX like I did once-Happy Fall, Y'all)
