Temperatures cooling off last week have ended the flowering of some of the plants. All the veggies are done, what little I got from them. I picked up another soil test at the Fair, so I’ll be doing another one to see if something has changed that might explain the lack of produce. The plants flowered, but didn’t produce the veggies. The thing that is unusual is that the double begonia apparently loves the cooler weather, as it is now blooming its head off.
Gorgeous yellow double blooms!
The yellow should look nice with an orange pumpkin, maybe it will continue to bloom for a bit more.
The pink geranium had a final burst of blooms.
The torenias will likely keep blooming well into October. Amazing aren’t they? The baskets now trail down to the railing.
This is the amaryllis that has bloomed for two years now. I am hoping it will do so again, so it will go into dark storage in a cool place soon. I am hoping it will bloom for Christmas.
These little guys will get moved to the other side of the door to replace the lobelias that are done.
The wildlife living in the woods surrounding our home is a continuing source of wonder for us. These deer aren’t often seen, so this visit by a doe and her fawn was so special. Can you see them? The doe is to the left of the tree across the driveway, the fawn is on the right side of the tree.
We watched quietly, careful not to startle them as they will bound away quickly.
I was holding my breath as they moved slowly into the sunlight across the driveway. The doe is on the far right, that is the fawn in the sunlight.
She followed quickly after, you can just see the little tail of the fawn in front of her.
I cannot wait for autumn, I am looking forward to the changing leaves. I want to go buy a pumpkin!
