|Yoshino cherry tree|
Although the garden is still full of summer blooming flowers, fall has definitely arrived with its colder temperatures. After a relatively cooler-than-normal summer, this area has had cool temps since September 1st. It was 42 degrees here last night, and we turned the heat on a few days ago since it has been in the 40's at night for a week. The Yoshino cherry trees in the front yard started dropping their leaves around September 1st. They are beginning to look a little bare.
My fall flowers started blooming at the end of August and are doing well. Here are a few photos of them.
