Ahhh! Finally some fall weather. It feels great in the evenings, although the days are still kind of warm. Sunday a week ago Wendy and I took a picnic lunch down to Jekyll. The weather was perfecto and a worth-repeating event.
But alas I had forgotten to take my camera along so there are no new beach shots. I did do some local stuff since the golden rods and black-eyed susans are begging for some attention. So I succumbed.
I entered the lot next to us. Entered would be the proper term since it it shoulder high in weeds and brush. Fine place for a snake to hide. There are cute little lavendar flowers that are on long, stemmy plants. They close up at night and reopen in the daylight.
There were little creepy crawlies there as well but I think they are pretty harmless.
This one knew some 4Him songs.
This one was struggling with coordination.
When I left the field I discovered I had some “custom embroidery” on my skirt from the friendly and somewhat clingy weeds.
There are some wild grape vines nearby with deliciously sweet grapes on them. Guess the wild vines are good for something!
The cotton was screaming for attention too. Here’s a little science class for you. The cottom blooms open as white on the first day. The next day the are open as a pink flower. On the third day the are a reddish color. By the 5th to 7th days, the are drying up and falling off, making way for the boll to develop. Below you have a new flower, one that is dying, and a boll that is developing.
These two were having a conversation.
Adios and have a blessed day!
