Although my days have been quite busy I wanted to share a few more photos from my trip to Fuller Gardens
Meanwhile my own gardens are fading fast. All the beautiful, bright yellow Daisy's I once had have pretty much died. Sunday afternoon I spent a lot of time cutting them back, along with the hosta flowers, hydrangeas, and other slightly misshapen plants. I really try to keep up with everything because I hate looking at dead flowers/leaves.
How about you? How is your garden looking?
Cool air is working it's way into New England during the evening. The flowers feel it. The birds feel it. The tree's feel it. And they are all reacting.
A few days in a row we had large groups of various Swallows swarming over our yard and surrounding fields, all feeding and gathering together to make the trip South. How can it be that time already??? A few orange leaves are popping out on the Maple trees. Early Macs are making their arrival known. Even the smell of the air seems a bit different.
And Monday my younger daughter heads back to school. Provided Irene doesn't give us flooding rains that is.

I just wanted to say . . . I have been overwhelmed by the response to my post 'It's a dog life at the beach'. I honestly had no idea it would be so moving to so many of you, however, anyone who has loved an animal, and lost their beloved companion, knows that feeling of devastation.
Thank you to those who shared the post on facebook and through emails. As a blogger you just never know what type of emotion a post will evoke. I'm glad this particular post was accepted with grace instead of disapproval at photographing such a personal moment.
