September Glory

I awoke on this September 1st to find my morning glories have finally bloomed…

I love thier big, bright blue blossoms!  😍

 I also awoke this morning to some brisk temperatures here in my little part of the world.  Not that I’m complaining, this is my favorite time of the year!  As many of you may already know, I absolutely adore everything there is about Autumn!  🍁

I’ll admit, it’s a little bit of a sad time in the garden, as everything is winding down.  Many of my plants are looking quite scraggly and my veggie garden gave up the ghost a bit early this year, as I’ve already yanked out my cucumber vines and my zucchini.  But I’ve still got some little jalapeno peppers going and a few tomatoes yet to turn red.

But as the Earth keeps spinning and the seasons come and go, everything in nature is always in some phase of transition and continual transformation, and I do my best to embrace each one.  All of life is a series of bittersweet hellos and goodbyes…

So hello to September, and a happy September 1st to all of you!  May this new month bring new and beautiful things to your life…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Satisfaction

 

Growing my own food and harvesting fresh veggies from my garden definitely gives me a great sense of satisfaction

And a deep sense of gratitude as well.

Don’t Be Shy

Don’t be shy

Lift up your eyes

Let your beauty shine

 

Like the sun

I found this lovely gem springing up between the cracks along the stairway outside my back door.  I didn’t plant it there, so my guess is that some of the black oil sunflower seeds that I feed the birds scattered there and sprouted.  What a delightful surprise!  I adore sunflowers and didn’t have a place to plant any this year, so I appreciate nature planting some for me in a place it saw fit – right out our backdoor, where we go in and out the most and can enjoy it’s beauty.

When I walked past it yesterday, I thought it looked like it was being shy with its head slightly tilted down, and its petals not yet fully opened reminded me of eyelashes.  I added a filter to this photo, which I never do, and edited it to give it a bit of a nostalgic feel, because that’s how I was feeling while looking at it.  I can’t wait until it “lifts up its eyes” and “let’s its beauty shine.” 🌻

 

May your day shine with beauty today, and with joy…

delicious treats

Unless the naughty squirrels steal them just before they’re ripe enough to pick.  😡  I have yet to taste even one of my strawberries this season…

Oh well, you win some you lose some when it comes to gardening.  At least I’ve been able to enjoy their sweet pretty blossoms.  🌸

 

May your world blossom with sweetness today…
