Blooms from Normandy

Fall in Normandy means flowers at harvest time. 
I am amazed at how flowers are part of the essence of living here.


Many, many dahlias in their glory...


along with Mother Nature's creatures...



both beautiful and humble.





The colors explode, especially against the foil of the indigenous stone.


What is going on in your fall gardens?

  5. Stunning! Nothing is happening in my Dallas garden because the drought and extreme heat killed it off. There is always next year...
