Bloomin' Tuesday

We had a quiet Labor Day weekend.
Changing the calendar over to September means
there is cooler weather and more gardening time
on the horizon.
There is a change in the air already, however subtle.
Being able to open up the house sounds mighty good.
It makes a noticeable difference in my demeanor
when it feels like the outdoors is more part of our home.
Here's what's bloomin' at Maple Hill this week.

Eggplant and tomato starts

A friend shared some of her lovelies with me.

The impatiens will go here.

It was a nice surprise to see this native salvia pop up
here by the back door.

These pumpkins got a late start, but we hope they will climb the tepee.

This hibiscus had its first bloom last week.

I'll try to catch the next one!

The morning glory always brings a smile to my face.

Zinnia budding...

and in bloom.

Uh-oh, looks like we've got some fairies hangin' around!

Morning lady bug!  Hope you're enjoying your time in the sun!

Have a fabulous day, y'all!
