If yesterday was a preview of fall, I'm ready for it! I went out and worked on the flower beds and picked some peppers and okra to pickle. Then I took a few pictures.
After last year's drought, it's a wonder anything is still alive. These guys were getting too invasive for my flowerbeds, so a few years back, I sort of tossed them over into a rough gully underneath the power lines. Needless to say, they were fruitful and multiplied.
but smaller than these--which are the ones I actually planted. I'll have to take a picture in the morning when they're blooming in full force. These were shaded, and were still blooming in the afternoon.
