Ah, September and Fall – my favourite time of the year. Of course in Central Texas, that means lower ’90s, but I’ll take what I can get. Today is exceptionally beautiful. After Friday’s rain – between five and seven inches…woo hoo! and Saturday’s transition, today turned out to be clear and fine. And I love September light; more golden and heavy dappled through the elm tree.
The humming birds are still around, but will probably take off in the next couple of weeks. The blue jays are more active – and more screechy…another Fall sound. More owl activity at night, too.
The garden is still thriving. August wasn’t overly hot, so there’s not that droopy, exhausted look you sometimes get in September. Here are some recent photos…
A gigantic spider web I found one morning – still amazed by the engineering feat.
My newest tchotchke – a hanging glass sphere I got at The Natural Gardener.
The morning glories are coming back to life.
A new coleus.
I put out my Fall garden decorations. I love this scrap-metal scare crow – a tea light goes in its head.
The black-eyed Susans still going strong.
And the Turk’s Caps, too.
