A Kiss of Fall

There is a simple beauty attached with fall plants.  My tomato plants are still producing.  As you can see, some tomatoes have more than a kiss of red to them.  Everyday I find a few more that way.

My Mother-in-Law’s garden is slowing down.  She still has a few squash plants growing.

Her small sunflowers still have the ability to brighten the day.

It’s the fall blooming plants that caught my eye last week.  These fragrant beauties are just starting to show their full color.  While photographing these flowers kissed in pink I saw a bee.  How lucky for me!  Nothing to be askew on this day.

This evening garden stroll shares how uncomplicated life can really be.  That we should enjoy the touch of a gentle breeze on a crisp fall evening.  When life seems askew a fragrant flower or a little bee can brighten our day.

    Yes, a walk through my back gardens can always brighten a day gone askew…..it is just magical to see all of nature’s changes and beauty.

  2. Don’t you love those vine ripened tomatoes?? When my older sister and I were small, we’d take a salt shaker into out one acre garden, sit in the warm dirt and eat tomatoes until we were full! Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #48!

    I can’t quite explain it, but something about late tomato season DOES something to me. I am the girl in the produce section (alas, I don’t yet have a garden of my own) who you’ll find nearly huffing the vine-ripened tomatoes. I’ll hold them up to my boyfriend every time and squeal “Isn’t that the BEST smell?!”

    Glad to hear that autumn blooming plants speak to you as well 🙂

    Oh my, my tomatos are long done:( I miss them already. But I am soooooo ready for fall and to break out my sweaters and boots.

  10. Hi Robyn –
    Thanks for joining in on Observing Beauty. Yes, Observing Beauty still has co-hosts, but there was a bit of a kerfluffle as one of us has a sister who’s going to have a baby any second now. The resulting confusion should be resolved now though!
    Again, thanks for chiming in!
