Jakesprinters: Autumn

Jakesprinters Sunday Post (that I am getting to on Tuesday) is Autumn – that period of transition between summer and winter. Although we have few signs of autumn yet because we have been having warmer than normal weather, there are some hints that it is soon to arrive.

    Seems like you just started spring/summer! We have sedums and burning bushes in our yard too. I’m hoping for some color despite the drought conditions.

    My poor burning bush began to “burn” at the end of July thanks to the drought and high temperatures 😦 It is nearly leafless now. But I am looking forward to the fall days ahead.

    I am seeing the opposite in my garden, as we head into the warmer weather Carol. As you head into autumn, I look forward to seeing your beautiful garden taking on the colours of your season, the opposite to mine. 🙂

    Your garden looks exactly like my garden, imagine that. I look forward to Autumn – prefer it to the blistering days of summer.

  7. I love thye colors of Aitunmn in this stae. all colors, all textures, even the fragrance of Atumn eexsist here. I t amazing like magic.
    We are starting to turn now because of cold night temps. WE are losing 40 to 50 degrees per day when the sun goes down. So it can be 87 like is now, but in less tahn 6 hours it will be down to 43. It is hard to acclimate.

    It’s still quite warn here. The trees that do loose their leaves tend to dry out and turn brown. It’s usually Dec/jJan before the leaves are gone and by then the new leaves are starting to unfurl and the hills have turned green. The seasons tend to overlap here, no distinct edges…. but we have been enjoying the temperate climate that comes with this. Lovely photos from your garden!
