It Is The Beginning of Fall

e

First Day of Fall mosaic.

It has been raining off and on today but just an hour ago I looked out and it was hailing really heavy. . You just never know what kind of day you are going to get in September here in the Sandbox. 

 

My mosaic today is showing the Sedum Autumn Joy that is blooming in the back foundation flowerbed. The leaves of the Maple are in the neighbour’s yard.  Polish Spirit clematis is blooming on the arbor.  I wondered the other day what all the pink was at the top of the arbor and when I looked closely I saw that the clematis had travelled all the way to the top to twine in the rose bush at the top.  This bloom just happened to be down at eye level.  The Chrysanthemum Clara Curtis is beginning to bloom also. She can be a bit aggressive but I really like the daisy like flowers.

 

Hope your week will be a good one.   I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.

What a lovely mosaic! I like the nice thick borders you used...I'll have to try that. Beautiful flowers! Happy Fall!

Delightful. The clematis gave you a little surprise didn't she! Your neighbor's maple is going to be such a joy this year...love to see red on maple leaves instead of the more common yellow.

Very pretty, Valerie. Love the mums - my little button mums are all beginning to open - I love the last blast of deep pink they give the garden at this time of year.

All of your fall photos are beautiful - love your mosaic!

Jill Harrison said...

lovely as always to see your beautiful garden images. Fall - we call it autumn here - maybe because we don't have the leaf "fall" that you have. We are coming into spring now, but these last few days we have been plunged back into the middle of winter.
Have a wonderful week, and thankyou for stopping by my blog today to say hi!
