The garden is so green and lush. This beautiful little butterfly was sipping nectar from my purple verbena.
The Encore azaleas were putting forth pretty pink blooms. I love how they bloom twice ~ in the spring and again in the fall.
And the buds on the chrysanthemums are ready to pop. I will be enjoying these mounds of bright yellow flowers real soon.
Friday is the beginning of fall, September 23rd, the autumn equinox, marking the end of summer, and here in the south this is the best time of year to garden. Time to plant those cool weather annuals and fall vegetables, put bulbs in the ground, and add shrubs and trees.
Looking forward to beautiful days ahead, cooler weather and sunshine.
