Falling ~


my garden is beginning to fall ~
slowly changing hues towards Autumn...


signs of the subtle change are everywhere i turn ~



colors aren't as bright, petal edges seemingly spent...
and things going to seed.





rosemary reaching for the sun with tired spires
(and the beginning of a woodpile in the background)



my sweet annie has reached the stars this year...
and it is the fullest I've ever seen ~



waiting to be harvested, dried and seeds collected.



even the ivies are starting to dim...not as bright green as they were
perhaps the summer's intense heat & lack of rain is bringing us an earlier-than-usual autumn feeling?





Pinocchio grazing in the morning sun...searching for tender grass ~



the swallowtails have been busy collecting last sips of herb nectar...






my beautiful coleus with it's striking colors...reminds me that halloween is not far away :)


...and my orange & yellow zinnias hint of pumpkins & sweet potatoes :




and everyday, i am visited by this little fawn & it's momma....



they come very close to the farmhouse and Lazy & Buddy don't seem to mind them much at all ~

...following momma back into the woods...
see the leaves starting to change?

...hoping you all have a beautiful day where you are!!
Blessings from the farm,
Lori

Beautiful pics of your wonderful bloom gardens. Wishing mine looked like that ~ the summer heat took its toll on mine this year ~ but enjoying yours. Such a sweet pic of the momma and baby.
Enjoy your day and all it's glory.
Do you sell any of your Sweet Annie seeds???
