Escape to Autumn © Lynn Wiles 2020
I took yesterday off to do some errands and then see autumn and be by water. Mission accomplished. We are not quite at peak season yet, but getting there.

Euphorbia Up Close © Lynn Wiles 2020
I don’t like living in an urban heat island in the summer, but it is nice this time of year when we experience frost later than the outlying areas and the garden is still in bloom. Meanwhile, I had to go through seven revisions with the new and old wordpress editors to get this to look consistent with the other posts on this site. sigh.

Evil Knotweed © Lynn Wiles 2020
I have spent hours digging, chopping and tarping over Japanese Knotweed around my house. Sadly it is taking over all the wild places around here as well.

No Need to Weed © Lynn Wiles 2020
Happy that my neighbor hasn’t weeded their garden. Now wordpress has strangely cropped and resized the image.

Fall Fork © Lynn Wiles 2020
While busily photographing flowers in the garden, autumn began. We are not at peak foliage season yet. I hope the rain in the upcoming days doesn’t make that less beautiful than usual, because we need rain so badly.

When Blue isn’t Blue © Lynn Wiles 2020
These decidedly purple flowers are from a butterfly bush called Buzz Sky Blue. I find that most flowers called blue are actually purple. Hmmm.

Curly Stamens © Lynn Wiles 2020
One lone chicory flower in the grass after the season has passed. Love the curly stamens, hairy petal edges and pollen waiting for the bees.

Fuchsia and Stone © Lynn Wiles 2020
White with pink fuchsia hanging over the stone wall in my garden. Now today, I could use the old version of Add Post, but it wouldn’t let me add an image, so I had to switch to the new Classic.

China Asters © Lynn Wiles 2020
We have been in a drought for quite some time, so here are some drops from my watering can on China Asters. They are annuals that come in lovely shades of purples and pinks. They aren’t minis, but did come from the Botanical Interests seed packets. A pleasure when a lot of the garden is beginning to fade.
