First came the lovely, glowing roses...
Then the lovely "surprise lilies," which sprang up after all the rain.
The gardenias are still blooming away as well, and there are spiderworts all over the yard, hiding in the ivy and grasses.
This lovely morning glory had its face turned toward the morning sun.
And last, but not least - the first real sign of fall. Gather ye rosebuds while you may, because soon it will be chilly and damp!
