The Home Stretch...of Summer
Sweet Autumn Clematis is just beginning to bloom...I let these ramble wherever they want, no pretty trellis for them. This one is crawling over the rock wall we have up by the road. Oh, and notice the newly fallen leaves in the area behind the rock wall. Autumn really is coming quickly! I mowed the grass this evening and the crickets are everywhere!
FINALLY, I got a Grandpa Ott Morning Glory to bloom! I was beginning to think these were never going to make it this season...the very first one bloomed on Monday. I love these things and can't believe it was still blooming this afternoon when I got home from work at 3:15...had to be the dark, overcast day and the cooler temps, right?
And, what is Summer's End without a bright Sunflower? This one is a volunteer in my garden...must be the birdseed... Check out those two happy bumblebees...I didn't notice them when I took the picture...I really did a double-take when I downloaded it!
