autumn ....

Autumn is such a lovely season with her colour and fragrance



and beautiful bouquets ......





Here are the last of the summer flowers at the cabin ....


 this cosmos was 6" across - I've never seen one so large

my favourite Supertunia - always a beauty


my only yellow calendula with a brown centre -
 I hope I can collect the seeds from this one.




Kudos to my husband for these pix of the blue jays.  There were about a half dozen of them and they became less shy - perhaps they were enjoying the pistachios we were sharing with them.

Wow that Cosmos was big. I love Autumn - the leaves are just beginning to change colour here - it won't be long before we are sweeping the leaves up from our drive and hearing the leaves crunch underfoot while out walking.

Lovely pictures - very pretty, and it is always nice to see the wild birds.

While you are cooling down over there, we are in Spring, roll on Summer!

I love autumn as well, it's so great to see all the lovely colours that nature offers at this time of the year, particularly the reds and oranges and yellows.

It really was an amazing September, wasn't it, Kate? I don't remember one as lovely :) Now we are in the midst of heavy rains, but we need it so very much...

Wishing you a happy October!
