Over the weekend I was doing a little garden clean up and took a few snapshots to share with you. Things are really starting to wind down.
This adorable chipmunk was resting on top of my fountain. He didn't know I was there :-)
Bright purple berries grace the Beautyberry shrub. A sure sign autumn is soon approaching.
Joe-Pye Weed has clusters of fuzzy pink flowers. Folklore states that Joe Pye, an Indian healer from New England, used this plant to cure fevers. It is always so interesting to find out how a plant obtained its name.
The happy faces of Japanese anemones.
The leaves are slowly starting to turn on the Virginia Sweetspire and the grasses are swaying in the breeze.
Hydrangea blooms are fading.
A pretty hosta flower is still hangin' on.
"Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful,
for beauty is God's handwriting."

Thank you for taking a short stroll with me. Until next time ...
