  4. Lots of beautiful blooms! We've been getting rain and cooler temperatures over the last few days so it really feels like autumn now.

  5. My goodness Philip, looking at your garden photos is like looking at candy! Eye candy that is. Yummy! Just gorgeous, and your plant combinations are excellent.

  6. Even though it's dry where you are, everything looks fresh. We've been especially wet this year, for us anyway. In fact, it rained yesterday evening and this morning, and there is more in the forecast. When we get rain, you are in drought. Strange how the jet stream works.
