Helianthus

It's becoming more apparent everyday that fall is here. The temperatures are in the 50s most nights with days in the 60s. The perennial sunflowers are blooming. The sedums have taken on their dark red hues. Pineapple salvia is blooming. The last of the hummingbirds zoom past as I wait for Koda to do his business. 

It won't be long now before the backyard is full of orange, red, and yellow foliage. Winter isn't that far away. Time to pull out the heavy comforter and put away the summer blanket for the bed. The tropicals are slowly making their way indoors.  I've got a meeting tonight with another client. Pansies are on her mind.

I'm loving the change in weather too, although it's not as nice as yours would feel right about now.

Pansies are sweet flowers that always make me feel happy.

Your gardens sound like they are going to be really colorful with autumn goodies. I love that picture of your cottage on the hill.

Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady

Gack! What is this new one post per page thing? I've been suffering through it somewhat, but I really don't like it. Any chance of changing it? I only make it in once a week or so.

It must be SC State Fair time....when the Helianthus is in flower, you know the smell of cotton candy and caramel apples isn't far behind
