I also took a few pictures around my garden. Some of the flowers in my garden are a special treat this year. Texas has "enjoyed" the driest summer on record, even outdoing the great Dust Bowl of the 1950s. Seeing so many flowers in bloom is a breath of fresh air, particularly since I lost several plants and shrubs this summer. Here's just a sample of what's blooming:
(Probably the last bouquet of roses from my garden. The yellow is the "Julia Child" rose - nice buttery yellow! The other I can't remember the name but both are fragrant and beautiful -- LOVE it!)
I'm going to enjoy my garden while it lasts...there's a good chance for frost and maybe even a freeze tonight so we'll see what's still around tomorrow. Happy Fall!
