September Sights

 September is a tough month. Only the most hardy of living things can take the heat and drought of this summer.
The Sedum did well.
 If I could remember the name of this beautiful garden flower I would's a good one to have!
I know someone out there will help me out with the name of this plant!
 I've been very careful to keep my favorite ferns watered and happy.
 And these wild Beautyberries have spread under the Black Gum tree!
 What would September be without the crazy antics of the Hummingbirds...
 ...yelling at me to fill the feeders...
 ...and keeping a watchful eye!
Summer is surely coming to an end.

 Well, Here's something I haven't seen in a while.

 I wasn't quite sure what it was at first!

 When you live on the tippy top of a mountain you don't get even the runoff from rain in the surrounding areas, so we're a little crispy here.
 Thanks to Tropical Storm Lee, we may get a little relief...
(well, maybe a LOT)...
...but it may be a little too late.
There is one good thing about living on the tippy top of a mountain,
flooding is not a problem.
