This last weekend our neighbors asked if we would take care of their animals while they were gone. We love doing this gladly. I was walking along the side of the house and came across these beautiful flowers and thought “OH, these are so cool! To me they look like zinnias but they are candy striped.
Another one with a little different design. So gorgeous!
The neighbor on the other side has this tree that I can see out my kitchen window. Here I am showing you it framed in the mutton.
For some reason it just looks so stunning from my window but I went outside and got a closeup for you.
Then further back. The day turned cooler but sunny. The humidity went away and it was so nice to be outside.
During this time of the year I love it when the blue of the sky is darker and it gives the colorful trees a nice background. The farmers have gotten their crops in and the neutral colored ground is lovely.
Another set of trees with the darker blue background. Standing outside with a little breeze, the temps are nice and the smell of a wood fire somewhere. Life is good!
