Today is the first official day of fall, and although my garden has started to fade, I am finally able to enjoy sitting out there in this cooler weather.
The impatiens are actually loving this cooler wetter weather and I think this is the prettiest they have been all summer.
The hosta leaves are starting to brown, and our naughty raccoon family has been busy digging and knocking over things.
I saw a pair of hummingbirds on this hanging plant yesterday. They are migrating now, so I am sure I will see more. I love hummingbirds. They were a favorite of my dad.
The begonias outside my mom's window are still doing good. She has enjoyed looking out at them this summer.
The mandevillas are still getting new blooms, although they didn't put out as many shoots in the hot dry summer that we had.
So, my favorite thing today, is enjoying my garden. I know it won't be long before it is gone and fall cleanup will begin, but I'll think about that tomorrow.
