Quinn learns how to make fire.
I had thought garden season was wrapping up, but in fact our garden looks nicer right now than it has all year. Afternoons in the sunny garden are just delicious.
There are still butterflies in the garden!
Sweet peas in October!
I found this perfect little nest with its tiny abandoned egg outside our front door. It had fallen from the tree branch in a strong autumn wind.
The nasturtiums are at their best this time of year.
Just as it seems as if summer flowers have gone for the season, the anemones bloom.
After a long hot summer, the garden is finally greening up again since the weather has changed. We've had lots of rain, lots of sun and cooler temperatures. It all makes the garden happy.
Morning glories in their glory.
Look who we found in the garden this morning! This is the first hedgehog I've ever seen up close. He was a baby and could have fit in the palm of my hand.
Amazingly we still have sweet peas in the garden. My favorite flower.
At the shack. Quinn is drawing butterflies. He and his family are here on vacation for 10 days.

On the way to the garden
We planted some Buddleia last year and they are now in bloom and attracting dozens of various kinds of butterflies.
Garden in the glowing dusk, a bit long in the tooth.
