Today, the calendar says “Autumn begins”. (Frankly, I’m disappointed for summer to be over already. Seems like it just began!) But just this week, the signs are all there…kids shivering in the early morning fog while they wait for their school bus, ducks and geese assembling and trying practice runs, foliage just starting to turn yellow and orange while the apples ripen bright red. One of the joys I’ve had this summer is to notice the colorful wildflowers each week. What an array! From the early summer pastels of Lupines and Queen Anne’s lace; to vibrant tiger lilies, coneflowers and goldenrod during the peak of summer, and now continuing into the cool nights with black-eyed Susans, mums and asters. And of course, we mustn’t forget that this season is all about pumpkins – pumpkin lattes, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin decorations and check this out: a pumpkin pot! With our crops of mums, pansies, kale and ornamental grasses, I love that we can continue this cycle of beauty. Happy Autumn!
