Nature Notes - things are changing around here


Visit Michelle at the intelligent Nature Notes Thursday to learn something new.

I hadn't been seeing many changes like other bloggers, but now they're coming at me pretty fast. The one I notice most is the darkness because getting out to run in the morning has become more challenging. The penstemon in my garden is fading, the rhubarb is dying back, the peony bushes are completely shriveled up.

But there are other things going gangbusters! Well, two things. Can two things be gangbusters?

My hibiscus, which was a birthday present last year from my lovely niece, is crazy every morning. The rose bush I planted in the front yard hasn't received any memo about autumn, either. I need to put rose pruning into the google machine and see what it spits out because it is now reaching out to grab any one who dares walk to the front door. Next I expect to see it embrace people in its thorny but loving arms.

The penstemon is beautiful. I love the coloration even if it is fading.

And the hibiscus looks way better than mine do right now. LOL

Autumn is HERE!

Your penstemon and hibiscus are both so beautiful. It's gotten hot again where I live so I'm ready for fall. Hopefully soon.

Wow, going by that hibiscus, I would never guess autumn either!
