The leaves are starting to change colors: all gorgeous golds and yellows and orange and red.
I was thrilled to discover that one of my favorite trees (a dogwood) was present in my yard during the spring when the flowers bloomed; even more thrilled when I realized it's the same tree that turns deep, deep red in autumn before dropping its leaves.
I have a love of plants but no green thumb. Chris has always planted my flowers for me and then I tend to them. Whomever owned this house before we got it had two green thumbs and a love of flowers that attract hummingbirds and butterflies. It makes my plant loving heart happy.
