The last Sunday of summer. Next Sunday will be officially fall. And just in time for the end of summer, here are some chrysanthemums.
It hasn’t rained all week and might not rain until the end of next, so we’ll be hauling buckets and hose today, watering trees.
Three days of rain, followed by the promise of sunny weather sometime today. Thankful for the rain. We may be almost out of the drought zone.
This ruffled wonder is still blooming when the other daylilies have turned to sticks. Rain is in the offing for tomorrow or the day after. We’ll see.
Here’s a tree that’s doing well despite the lack of rain. It was here when we arrived–almost two decades ago. It looks like and grows like a maple, the leaves turning bright yellow in fall, with roots above the ground and lots of suckers needing to be cut.
We’re promised rain later today, and the radar shows us covered in green. Fingers crossed.
We woke to rainy skies this morning, more drizzle than rain. And after a day of promise, the rain gauge shows one-eighth inch. The lawn is still brown, the trees are losing their leaves, but we have storm clouds riding the skies.
