I decided to step out in my yard on this gray and wet morning to see if I could find signs of fall. The mums are starting to bloom. The picture below is really a very dark burgandy mum, but the lighting (or lack of) this morning changed the color some.
Flowers are showing up where they usually don't.
The roses are still blooming like crazy and so are the hibiscus.
Is this summer or fall?
Is this what they mean by "amber waves of grain"?
Actually, it is the soybean field starting to turn color.
The dahlias are confused and full of buds and blooming again.
So far, this tree down the street is one of the only ones around here with leaves turning. We are still very green, but soon the trees will be vibrant with color.
Guess what I'm working on today?
The ghosts and goblins are about to show up around my house.
I'm joining Kim @ Savvy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesdays and
Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
Please stop to visit with our wonderful hostesses.
