In about a month (give or take a week), summer, the growing season will be a memory.
Our sunflowers have already stopped blooming. The last of the late summer/early fall flowers are opening - asters, late hydrangea, sedum.
Yellow jackets seem to be a little less aggressive. Hopefully, I'm right, as I've not had the greatest of years with insect bites.
Trees are already shutting down, due to our drought. I'll be able to share fall foliage pictures with you sooner than normal.
Today, let me take you on a quick summer walk through the West Side of Binghamton, New York. I am moving my Summer Ramblings feature to Tuesday, this week, as tomorrow is World Gratitude Day.
One more summer walk, as fall starts Thursday morning.
Roses are still blooming, and not just Knockout types that keep blooming and blooming. I don't think I've ever seen this plant blooming so late in the year.
Cosmos are thriving, too. Yellow here.
And I don't even know what these are, but they sure are pretty.
So hard to believe that fall will start in two days, but nothing stops the changing of the seasons. See you in our fall. And, stay tuned for my post tomorrow for #WorldGratitudeDay.
