The Changing of the Gard-en

I love the flowers that I see this time of year in the gardens that I pass on my walks.

The delicate anemones, their soft pink petals with deep yellow centers, wave gently in the sea breezes.

The black-eyed Susans, forever undaunted by the summer heat, never looked more vibrant. That’s more than I can say for myself!   😉

It seems like yesterday when the hydrangeas were just reaching their peak.

And as we drift toward September, I see the lacecap hydrangeas are now turning their softer shades of blue, purple and pink…

Their relatives, the mopheads, are taking on that old-fashioned “antique” dried-flower-look that I love this time of year.

I am always amazed by how well the flowers all do all summer long, in spite of the heat and humidity.

But I do think they ALL perk up even a bit brighter as the days grow shorter and the nights get cooler.

I know, I sure do!!  😉
