Do you welcome September as much as I do?
Spring and Autumn are the best times of the year to me.
Everyone in the Hollow seems a little cooler and more content as summer breathes her last and Autumn takes command with a crispness we all recognize and delight in.
As the perennials in the cottage gardens fade, turn to skeleton and go to seed, it is the fabulous Zinnias that continue to burst forth with more and more bloom, even as the gourds and pumpkins grow ever larger on the vines.
September gets me in the mood to put paint to paper this week on the Rooster piece I drew many months ago.
A chance to paint the colors of Autumn.
I'm excited to paint the gourds, squashes and pumpkins next.
Please enjoy the last of summer color as I take a walk through my Zinnia Cutting garden.
I got pretty excited over these simple plant, and you will see why.
