Hi Everyone, I took a walk this afternoon before our daily afternoon storm! I cannot believe all the rain we have had this summer...nearly every day several inches of rain! The Crape Myrtle tree in the front yard has been blooming since the last of May and is so pretty!
I planted a crouton on each side of the steps at the front porch back in winter and now they are big and so pretty. They will look great in the Fall with some pumpkins scattered around. It will almost seem like Fall foliage, and in Florida we don't have a lot of leaves changing colors in Fall. Fall is subtle, but it does come. After living here for many years, I can recognize it. Usually in late August and early Sept., I do "feel" Fall coming. It has been a hot summer, so I am looking forward to cooler days.
And guess who is out in the yard, of course? It's Sammie and she is looking at a Bumblebee. She is so curious about everything and being only 4 months old, everything is exciting to her. And sometimes scary! The first time she saw grass blowing in the wind, she got scared!
Here is the bumblebee. After trying a few times, I finally got a shot I could post! They love the Cosmos, and it has reseeded from last year and keeps reseeding until it is almost out of hand again.
See what I mean. Not a very tidy patch of flowers!
