The last blooms of summer

The sun is warm today but there is an ever so slight nip in the air.  Many of our potted plants have begun a slow decline and our night time temperatures have dipped as low as the mid thirties.  But there are still glorious flowers to celebrate.

The big heads of the dahlias are reaching for the waning rays of warmth.


This tropical beauty is working overtime to bring a few last blossoms before being moved to the warmer confines of indoors until this time next year.

The beautiful purple/blue hydrangea blooms are ready to be savored in at least one more early autumn arrangement. 


I am thoroughly enjoying the last drops of summer on this last Saturday of the season.  I hope you are too…
