Techinically it's still summer, but today's weather hinted at the coming days of Autumn. Living in a coastal climate, the days start with some morning fog, clearing to an afternoon of glorious sunshine. Many summer days start this way as well, but there's a distinct coolness in the air that whispers a change in season.
A new hydrangea flowering bud ready to greet Autumn days.
The same hydrangea plant with a flower that has been in bloom since Spring. Still going strong.
Same for my potted rose still a-bloom. I expect one more burst of buds all around through the Fall. And a continued battle with the bugs that love my roses just as much!
15 years ago we planted a row of poplar trees.
They now tower about 25 feet tall. The rustling of the leaves signal cooler days ahead. It's an incredibly peaceful sound. I love to just be still and listen.
Enjoying it all with a cup of tea and crochet out on the picnic table...and determined to finish this granny blanket before the official onset of Autumn. I've got 2 days!
Enjoy the rest of your week :-)
