Ahh, fall is here! I love the carefree feeling of summer but I really love the cool, crisp, clean feel of the fall, the brilliant display of natures’ colors and the absence of pesky bugs, especially mosquitoes.
While the weather is changing some of the flowers are dying while others are still flourishing. Here’s a picture of ten rose of Sharon bushes my husband and I transplanted on one side of our house. The mother plant as been severely cut back this year due to an invasive weed that attached itself to the middle of the plant and started to choke it. I managed to pull the weed out and the landscaper did the trimming.
Some of the flowers are purple and some are white and this happens on almost all of the bushes. The mother plant used to be all purple but now it is sprouting both colored flowers. They are beautiful, fast growing and resilient. Once they get a foothold they keep flowering every year here even after being given a short haircut by my husband soon.
My rose bush is doing well with bountiful blossoms. St. Theresa is surely smiling down on them.
The hydrangea is still producing flowers but not as bright as previously.
We enjoyed taking our 2-3 mile walk around the neighborhood and I got these incredible shots of a couple of turkey buzzards sunning themselves on neighbors’ roofs. They are huge birds even from this distance.
Did the notice the cloudless sky of a gorgeous azure blue? Is there anything more beautiful in this world? It made me happy to be alive and well to enjoy it.
Here are some fall decorations to put you into the autumn spirit.
I hope wherever you live and whatever the season you have a lovely day!
