bye bye summer

this gorgeous coreopsis is one of the last to flower in our garden.  but the excitement doesn’t end there.  abloom is the fragrant autumn clematis signaling the end of summer.  the mature vines are laden with billowy masses of tiny star-like white flowers.  a knockout beauty with sweet scent.

there are still a few colors in the garden but not for long.  summer officially ended early this week in my corner of the world.

happy weekend!

    It looks as though you still have quite a few blossoms. We are further along in our journey into fall.
