We had a very dry summer, and watering our
plants was an endless chore. Autumn arrived
and with it came rain. Yes, lots of rain...
Our plants started growing and blooming
like crazy. It felt like if spring had returned
once again to our gardens. Here are pictures
of our second Spring.

and before they are buried in snow,
there comes a festival season
when nature is all glow."

precious as Autumn sunshine by
staying in the house. So I spend almost
all daylight hours in the open air."
