Bloom Day, Sept. 15, 2011

The male yellow finches have begun to shed their brilliant yellow plumage in favor of their winter wear.  Temperatures this morning hovered around 40 F.  A few timid leaves have started to give up their green and the bald cypress in the front yard is trying to decide when it should turn bronze.  Fall is here, if not officially, then spiritually.

Below are today’s bloomin’ stars.

  1. Everything is so beautiful! I just love the Julia Child rose. It is such a reliable performer. We planted one this year and I am blown away by how much it’s grown and how beautiful it is. As for the rest of your blossoms, just gorgeous. Fall may be coming, but you are certainly getting some gorgeous autumn color just the same!
