On this fine September morning I was happy to see this butterfly floating in my garden. There haven’t been that many this year. It fluttered about then finally settled on a late-blooming lavender blossom. I was able to get close enough as it drank deeply from the blossom’s nectar turning over and over the bloom.
I liked how the sunlight caught the wings of the butterfly, softening it.
The early morning hours were cool, but I could feel the warmth of the sun and knew it was going to be another very warm summer’s day.
The garden is tired now. Only a few days left to the season and I have some clean-up to do. I see the deep red Crape Myrtle is giving us a second flush of blooms – I dead-headed the earlier blossoms a while back.
This Hibiscus is doing beautifully.
The La Marne rose has several blossoms that appear faded from the summer’s heat. They’re first blooms are a beautiful pink.
The Moss Rose is still opening its flowers showing its vibrant colors– usually around 10 am
The petunias have shown their beauty throughout the summer
I am very happy with the Geraniums this year.
This Sweet Autumn Clematis is a volunteer – I would have them all over the garden if I let them!
I am enjoying the fairy tale mirror in my garden –
it adds just the right whimsy to my garden – I plan on moving garden statues to create a sort of – Snow White garden.
I hope you’re enjoying this September day, Fall is not too far away – I look forward to its crisp mornings and its colors.
