Sunday Stroll - Approaching Autumn

It is late in the season, but this summer's snapdragons are still going strong.

These beautiful daylilies have also been blooming for a long stretch of sunny days.
The first four plants to bloom have been down for a while,
but the dog bit off the stalks on this plant early in the summer. 
I was sad when it happened,
but now that I have daylilies blooming in September,
I am counting my blessings!

The wave petunias are still the stars of the show 
at the edges of the garden,

and the Autumn Joy sedum is beginning to blush nearby.


Roses are blooming... again,

and the antique Hungarian baby baths
 that we planted with herbs
are filling in with greenery and color.

The bees are still busy,
and so are we.
It is a good kind of busy.

Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you peace.

Sunday Stroll - Friendship

 Friends of ours moved into their dream house this weekend. We gave them a hand for a few minutes on Saturday.  I snuck away to stroll through the lovely gardens so I wouldn't be in the way while they squeezed a piano in through a tiny door in the cozy stone cottage.

Wherever you are,  whatever the weather,  I wish you joy.
