and fall is taken over summer, yet,
here in Texas, it still feels like summer.
The days are sunny and most of the time in the 80s and low 90s.
The flowers in the garden are still as lovely as can be.
The morning glory is full and a beautiful blue
and the most beautiful creatures hide within it's leaves.
The rose moss is still cheery,
the zinnia is still showing off it's vibrant colors
They are such a happy flower it seems
The cosmos are the loveliest ever this year
The wild prairie aster that grows along the grounds,
has chosen a section of the garden fence to grow.
They are such a cheerful flower.
and many creatures have been discovered hiding underneath
any kind of covering on the ground. It is a time
that we have to be very careful and observant to avoid being
bitten. Thankfully this is a checkered garter snake.
A very shy and gentle creature.
And with October being a favorite time for the taste of pumpkin,
it is also a time for the warm wonderful flavorful dishes
that apples can bring. I have a recipe for a wonderful treat
for just this time of year. You can find it on my cooking blog

Here's wishing you lovely and pleasant autumn days!
