Fall is coming. I can see it everywhere. Now is a perfect time to be out in the garden.
Sure - things are looking pretty ragged right now - but, when it isn't raining, the garden is an inviting place to be!
I've had some fun surprises in my garden this year. Just last week, for example, one of my water hyacinths (in the PuddlePond, of all places) bloomed!
And earlier this month, I found a cicada hanging out with my succulents. He was most cooperative and posed for several photos.
(I love the green stripe - that looks like a blade of grass - on his wing.)
And all of the rain. . . brings the occasional rainbow.
The rain, actually, has been very good for my garden. My rain barrel is full; the plants are happy; and who can resist the allure of raindrops on rose petals?
Or just plain, old foliage for that matter!
Yes, now is a perfect time to be out in the garden.
And I'm going to enjoy it while I can!
