Getting towards the end of summer is kind of bitter sweet for me. I look forward to summer and its warm sunny days for months and then before you know it it's over. If you have been following, you would have some inkling that hot humid summers are not for me. As I have said I'm a 26 C with a nice breeze kind of gal. So when fall is poking its nose around the corner I welcome it with open arms. For most Canadians, fall means warm/cool sunny days. It means there is a slight nip in the air, a sweater on your back and a cup of something hot in your hands while sitting on the patio listening to the neighborhood. It means leaves of yellow, orange, burnt umber, red, burgundy and green. But I don't mean to push. I can wait and I will do so. Not everyone is ready.
So that brings me back to the last of the summer flowers in my garden.

Also hello to some sedums, new york asters, switch grass and the colouring foliage of Sweet Henry Itea. Farewell to the troopers helianthus, cup plant, shasta daisies, black eyed susans, coneflowers, Rozanne geraniums, gaura and phlox.
