This morning is dismal, a few rain showers now and then, and chilly. A good day to stay inside – maybe even time to turn the heat on. But yesterday was a lovely sunny day, so we’re going back in time to yesterday to walk about the yard and find the early signs of fall.
The sweet pepper plant is displaying a superior bit of poor timing, deciding now to bear fruit. It gave me one small pepper earlier this summer, and tantalized me with blooms that seemed to be frozen in time. Frost will soon be upon us, so I think I will wait till the last moment, and the harvest will yield mini-peppers.
There are still a few flowers in bloom, like this coneflower. The Autumn Joy Sedum (I took a picture, it was fuzzy so it is not displayed) is coming into its own as the other blooms fade away into the fall.
It’s always refreshing to take these little walkabouts and find life in various stages. It fills me with enough. How about you? Have you found enough?
