September - the days are growing shorter, beautiful sunsets.

Butterflies prepare for their trip.

The Franklinia is blooming!

 

 

As August comes to an end and September begins, we continue to be fortunate in receiving needed rains to keep the trees, shrubs, grass and flowers looking their best for this time of year. 

 

The fall flowers - asters, chrysanthemums, zinnias, celosia, dahlias and others are blooming in every color imaginable, even blues...grace the garden.

 

The wild bird population continue to delight us around the feeders.   Our favorites include, downy woodpeckers, bluejays, titmouse, nuthatches, goldfinches, wrens, and chickadees.   The migratory birds have fledged and as the continue to enjoy the garden, they now await the cue to begin their travels south.

 

The butterfly catepillars are on many plants getting fat, while their other family members flitter around collecting nectar.

 

We have received almost 200 visitors to our private garden this year and look forward to welcoming all the fall lovers.

Her blushing farewell, at my feet were strown."
