I love fall, but I’m not sure I’m ready to say goodbye to summer.
I’ve harvested all of my cucumbers from the garden, my tomato plants are beginning to fade, and our pumpkins are beginning to turn orange.
My sunflowers, although cheery, always symbolize the end of summer for me. It takes all summer to grow them, and they’ll bloom for a week or so, and then be gone. The one pictured is a new variety for me – it’s more of a “bush” variety and only gets to be about two feet tall. My mammoths (currently standing at eight feet tall!) are on the verge of blooming.
The birds love the mammoths, and it’s always fun to see the different species that come to feast. We’ll see if they make an appearance on the blog!
