We started the week off cooler. Today was overcast and gray. It felt chilly. We warm back up to the mid 70s tomorrow, and have a chance of hitting 80 degrees in the next week. Summer definitely doesn’t seem to be over yet.
Still, there are some glimpses of fall, especially today with the gray skies.
The mums have come back. It still surprises me a little bit whenever something I’ve planted comes back for another year. And I had no idea how big they would get!
Here's a closer view of the flowers.
The yellow ones aren't quite as big. I may have gotten a little too enthusiastic when I tried to deadhead them.
They’re still pretty, though. Here’s a closer view of the flowers.
It’s not all fall plants, though. One of the snapdragons from this spring is still blooming. It’s dwarfed between the purple and yellow mums, but still going strong. We also still have cherry tomatoes (even though we haven't planted them for a few years), but I didn't get a picture of them today.
My favorite mums are the ones next to the carport. I think this burgundy is the perfect fall color.
Here’s a closer view of the flowers. Don’t they just look like fall?
One of the bushes in our front yard is just starting to turn.
Here’s a slightly closer view of the changing leaves.
And an even closer view of the changing leaves.
So what about you? Are you seeing some glimpses of fall where you are? Or more than a glimpse?
