At long last, summer appears to be over. The cool crisp air of Autumn is arriving….we even had a few rainy days! Everything seems to be breathing a sigh of relief. The few things left in the gardens are very happy!
It was joy to walk around the gardens and see that so many things have survived this hot dry summer. And now with the cooler weather, they are in their glory.
Sedum…a last feast for the bees.
The greenhouse is empty now..but for the marigolds in front.
I even found some volunteer gourds growing with the chard and the kale.
Time for some Fall decorations! I headed up to the farm stands to get a few more things.
Gourds! I just love them. Such interesting shapes and colors.
Mums, of course, by the door..with a pumpkin.
A smaller window box. I am sure the hungry chipmunks and squirrels will feast on it all eventually, but for now it is just nice to have some color!
The trees are only just beginning to turn…their show will continue in the coming weeks as New England has one more burst of beauty…before winter descends.
Nature never ceases to amaze!
