This is the first week I've really noticed how much sooner darkness arrives and then the bulb catalogues arrive so I know summer is about to end. My garden looks tired right now which is sort of how I felt in the heat and humidity. As a kid we didn't have air conditioning but I wasn't raised in the South--how did Southeners cope in the summer--guess that's why they move and talk slower. I know I do when I'm out in the garden this time of the year. Anyway here are some of the new flowers blooming this week. The Canna's have been blooming for several weeks--I like this picture of the bloom and seed pods.
Here are this weeks church flowers and an arrangement.
