Blue Autumn skies in North Carolina on this perfect weekend.
Large oaks yet to turn color...........nights
are still mild and we are enjoying
dinner in the gazebo lit with candles.....
and being bombarded with thousands
of acorns of monster proportions,
a bumper crop this year!
Yesterday I caught beauty in the lens as a jet flew over
and I glanced skyward into the sun.
I'm sad to think I will be taking down these still beautiful deep blue Morning Glories this week. They grew in a large pot from seed in Springtime, were nurtured through a blazing hot Summer, and then survived what Bob said were endless days of heavy rain while I was in Australia in September. My good neighbors helped with watering during dry spells when we were both traveling. Tucked alongside them were Moonflowers, they are over now, but these deep cobalt blue pretties still hang on, awaiting the first frost. I don't want to come back from this next trip and see a gooey, black mess hanging from the porch, so later this week I'll be taking them down, washing out the pot, and storing ready for next Spring.
Nature.........always full of beautiful surprises.
