September Pretties

It feels like Autumn right now — grey skies, blustery winds … fall clematis, nasturtiums and sedum in bloom. Here’s a little garden beauty to start your week:

This fennel is loaded with pollinators …

The new fox seems to be very good at groundhog patrol. This many years old, formerly huge fall clematis, which Lucy the Starchild Groundhog all but destroyed digging a new hidey hole, even managed to put out some blooms this year:

I love this transition between Summer and Autumn. The rich, yet muted colors and changing light make me smile. Wishing you and yours a beautiful day!

    Lovely, Laura! Thank you. Yes, autumn is in the air down here in Missouri too…feels like it is coming early. I have fennel growing too and I love it..the black tailed swallowtails love it too. Hugs to you,

  2. Hugs to you, too, Janet! I’ve been sensing an early autumn here. Hopefully winter won’t last as long as this past one, though! I’m almost out of fennel seeds, so it will be nice even after the beauty fades. 🙂 Big blessings!

  3. Thanks for the beauty. It reminded me…
    “The flowers, more ephemeral, more ethereal and more delicate of the plants in which they sprout, are like messengers from another kingdom, like a bridge between the world of physical forms and that of what has no form.” E. Tolle
