Sweet Autumn

Finally, the beautiful fall-blooming clematis has burst forth. Sweet Autumn is its name and it is just that. A delightful scent and little star-shaped blooms combined with a wonderful climbing habit. It is tumbling across the front porch in sheer joy of Autumn.






This morning we were greeted with crisp, chilly temperatures and the sunrise was glorious. Lots of trees are beginning to show color; Autumn is upon us.

Perfect, of course, as Saturday is the Autumn Equinox. We are now being rewarded for the long hot trip through summer.

Bring on the pumpkins, mums, gourds and all the other beauteous symbols of a witch's favorite season!!



And Happy Birthday today to my kid brother!

Thank You! Last night was the first cool night here, it got to a very nice 60 degrees, inland had mid 50's. It takes an adjustment after the hot, humid temps. It will be warm again over the weekend though. I may cook a lamb steak then.

Robin...the nights are crisp here too which lend to the painting of such glorious Autumnal colors! :)

My big Seedum is glorious this morning with such a vivid pink flower and the hostas are filled with lovely purple flowers the bumblebees and hummingbirds love...

Oh I love this time of year! I've been doing a bit of Halloween decorating this morning...just couldn't wait, lol!

Top of the Day to You and Yours!
Love,
Akasa

Happy bday to your brother! Your clematis are just breathtaking. I am glad weather is a bit better in your neck of the woods. South Florida continues to be hot, humid, and hot again. Hopefully soon it will cool down a little.

Your clematis looks very happy indeed! :) I've started drawing pictures of halloween already, very unlike me to do that! I feel the autumn spirit in the air.

What a gorgeous clematis! Our nights are chilly now, we actually dipped into the negatives last night. That will bring on the changing leaves. Love the witch photo!!
