Hangin' On

Even though the season has technically changed, the farmette still seems to be hanging on to summer.  A flower in a broken pot, that was ready for the rubbish bin, has decided to come back to life. 

The tomatoes are still going strong.

Zinnias are still gifting us with their color. 


And let us not forget the weed.....

nothing but a flower with virtues not yet discovered.  I sometimes think they could survive even through the depths of winter.

  4. Autumn has arrived here in Oregon.. it's cloudy, there were some raindrops on our skylights this morning over the bed.. and the temps have fallen and there is wind. The trees are just beginning to turn.

  6. Yes...those lovely weeds...I too think they can survive through the winter..Just ask my husband. It is a full time job trying to keep weeds out from around all the tree rows.
    Blessings today..

  7. Autumn has arrived here and I love it! The trees are late this year but slowly they're turning.

    I usually replace my planters with chrysanthemums by now but I haven't needed to yet because my planters still look so good!

  9. Things are still hanging on here too. I told my husband today that I need to get the flowers out of the window boxes and he said "Why they still look pretty?" So they will stay until October 1st.

  15. Summer always here for us. We get the cool summertime in winter months and warm summer days in, well...in summer months. I rather like weeds that bloom pretty little flowers. Hard for me to pull them up when they look like that.

  24. Isn't it wonderful when summer decides to hang around just a little longer, as witnessed by your photos. Same thing is happening here up north - it's staying warm and the cool winds of change haven't started blowing yet.
