Evening color in the garden

September 20 and everything is so pretty, thanks to abundant rain and a bit cooler weather. Makes us sad the days are growing shorter with less time to enjoy the outdoors!
The rail pots have done SO well this year!

The orange cosmos came back wonderfully.

Summer's end...

Inches and inches of rain have made the end of summer extraordinarily beautiful here in mid-September.

The back deck is once again my favorite place to hang out when the rain or sunshine don't chase me in, but we can enjoy it even from the kitchen table.
