Beau September 19th, 2007
Many flowers have begun blooming again. This week is warmer, but probably the last very warm week of the year. A fitting tribute to summer’s end perhaps.
I found this beautiful apricot rose open at sunrise.
The butterflies love the sedum plants in flower.
What a neat plant… drought tolerant, easy to grow, beautiful in flower.
And below is Sweet Autumn Clematis in full flower. It’s very beautiful, and very fragrant. Almost reminds me of Jasmine. Some say this plant can be invasive and escape from the garden to the surrounding borders and forest. We have not experienced that in the Zone 5/6 weather, and the plant is at least 5 years old.
Speaking of invasive, I know these are wild Morning Glory flowers, but they are growing everywhere! They seem to appear when you least expect them. This one is growing around a small shrub, claimed by the drought and heat this summer. There’s something about them I like…
It doesn’t seem like Summer should be coming to an end for the year. Yet I see the light has a special color to it in the mornings and evenings, the droning of insects in the trees has grown quieter, and the birds seem quieter too. I heard a Phoebe yesterday, but he’ll soon be gone, as will the Hummingbirds. Everything has it’s season, and it’s time for Autumn.
