The mornings are a little cooler, days still hot, the sun is rising later every morning. Subtle signals in the garden that autumn is on its way.
Leaves turning to russet gold, the yellow day lily flaunts its last blooms, and the Gossamer Grass leaves have their red/pink seed heads that show at the very end of summer.This is a beautiful plant also known as New Zealand Wind Grass, as it waves so delicately in the slightest breeze.
The water lily blooms have gone, and coloured leaves tell me it has signalled a change in the season.
Quotation of the day from John Steinbeck
“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
