Cold. Wet. Rainy. Fall is here.

It's rainy and wet and cold today. Poor kitty was out all night. Take a look at these shriveled leaves on the lilac bushes. Brrrr. Lawn is still plenty green though with all this rain!

Ready for Autumn

Looks like we're in for some autumn rain. It's time to trim down the plants and get ready for the coming months. The ivy is trying to take over the side of the house again. Pretty. But it really wrecks the siding!

Sedum - Really Red Now

Beekeeping on a Saturday

I got brave yesterday and got up close to get these photos of beekeeping in action.

Asperagus Ferns

Dainty. Delicate looking. Dew. Berries.
Whispy ferns. Almost magestic. Surreal.

Lawn Lines

August and September weather has been awesome for growing. Even the lawn! I love the way freshly mowed grass smells. Look how GREEN everything is! Hard to believe that fall is around the corner.

Roses of Sharon

Last summer my lavendar roses were gorgeous. Regal, almost.

This summer there are more buds, multiple flowers.

Mini Daisy & Church Cherry

Little daisy flowers are so nice and dainty. Seems like everything is beginning to fade except some purple and white flowers. The cherry tree is outside my church. They look like something you'd see in June, not mid September!

Sedum - Starting to turn Red

The sedum is changing from green to pink to red.

You can tell fall is on the way, when the sedum starts to change.

More Hostas

Out front, near the front flagstone walkway entrance. Taken during the 5 minutes of sunshine we had this morning. Take a look at the hosta planted near the street across from the cows:
