As fall settles into the role of a familiar guest in my front yard my roses are seduced by the cooler air and send forth the best blossoms of the year. They are larger and more fragrant than ever. Yet I need to be very careful if I want to bury my nose in the lovely pink silk beauty.
My zinnias also hide surprises as I lean forward to check out the delicate and lovely yellow centers! Eeek!
My walk back from the dock at sunset also keeps me on my toes as this fellow was hanging just above my head on the path back to the house. Is it Halloween yet?
I decided to share some of the spookiness with my grandkids. I don't need to be the one having all the fun.
