The beauty of nature at this time of year just takes over the conversation everywhere you go. The trees are turning early and I'm glad they are colors and not just dried up and brown after the drought this summer.
Every year I threaten to dig out all of the volunteer asters but this year I had to leave them there to shade the small delicate perennials that couldn't take the heat without rain. Aren't those 2 photos a great color scheme?
I only have to fill the bird feeders twice a week now that I have chained this one shut and the squirrels can't pop the lid open any more. Of all of the greenery you see in the background over 75% is weeds. They survive when everything else turns brown and curls up. Next year I hope we have good weather so I can spend some time cleaning it up.
