I'm so glad to see September finally arrive! I love fall, and the changing of the light. Some things in the garden are putting out a final hurrah. The Purple Fountain Grass is looking handsome, though everything else in the pot  has passed on.  The little rose has a few flowers and buds. The Caladium still looks fantastic! I wish I could keep it for next year.  We've had a lot of rain lately. I'm hoping for a very pretty fall. 

Sorry I've been gone for so long, just trying to get back in the swing of things.  We had a medical emergency with my son last week and spent several days at the hospital, but all is well now. I haven't made the blog rounds, but I have 3 days off and hope to visit everyone soon!

I hope you're having a lovely Saturday. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi Leslie! Thanks for posting the great photos of the brave plants still around at the end of Summer. I just discovered the purple fountain grass this past Spring...usually I am not a fan of "grasses" but I am in love! I put the grass in urns by the front door...they are very hardy and are huge now...I hope they stick around for Fall too. I am following you now.

  2. Glad your back, your son is out of the hospital and you're photographing again. Yes, we're a lot alike. xo Jenny

  3. Love seeing your great snaps and thank you for popping over to see me.
    Hope you're having a great weekend.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  4. Lovely plants and photos. Your garden must look beautiful. I do hope you son has recovered. Have a great weekend!

  5. Great photos, I love the purple fountain grass, my maiden grass is already dead because of such a lack of rain. Thanks for sharing and yes I have had a wonderful Saturday, I have been crafting all day and loved every minute of it.

  6. Perfect for this transitional time. Great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays. Looking forward to having you with me this Sunday.
