Vermont backyard flowers, insects, foliage. Sept

Like California, Vermont has sunshine and flowers; you just have to reach higher here.

September in Vermont brings sunshine, flowers, 

and the early to middle stages of fall foliage.

                                                     Fallen but not forgotten

                                     From tree to mulch
                                                          nest and egg included.

                    I say, dear chap, it is quite beautiful, and Green and Clean here in Vermont. 

                                                                        Hang on, you ain't seen nothing yet.

                                                Green and Ripe - who knew.

To Bee Balm or not to be balm

                                                   Good Morning
                                                               to you
                                                             May you shine from within.

                                                         I love you beary much Gavin! Grandpa & Gramma

                                         Aw shucks, I'm just a shy ole country girl.

                                        Hummer singing Joy to the World

                                Elderberrys and Snowberrys - both signs of things to come

                                               Well I do declare sister, it is a fine, fine day.

                                                           Coloring inside the lines

                                                        Twins on Twins
                                                                Boxed in, snuggling, warm and comfy

 While the bees continue foraging, I am finding cutting kindling and small logs (with a hand saw) enjoyable, as it is about the doing, and not about the getting it done.

                                 Somebody brought their Crayolas outside

Just spotted a most colorful, beautiful, unique leaf twirling down.
Then I looked up and spotted a whole generation of them.
 Vermont rocks!
