This morning Team Testosterone headed off to their first day of school. Mr. D accompanied them to the end of the driveway where they all waited for a bus! (Green Girl has taken this shot of every child on their first day of school--it shows how they've grown as they walk beside their dad, walking away from her and towards the year ahead.)
Camera in hand, Green Girl decided September 1st was a great day to take a photo for her fall blog header. She was wearing a brand-new apron and looking quite dapper.
Then it occurred to her to take readers on a garden walk. The sunflowers beckoned her to the vegetable gardens.
Green Girl ignored the vegetables because she'll be grubbing around in there later, picking tomatoes, onions, peppers and basil. Veering left, she tromped towards the domestic end of the garden where she planted zinnias,
tall red lilies,
black-eyed Susans, Russian sage,
prolific amounts of coneflowers,
and sedum about to bloom.
The prairie is brilliant this time of year.
Fields of gold surround Green Girl. She twirled around a little bit like Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music before continuing down the path.
She loves finding dew-drenched webs.
Further along you'll see she and her neighbors planted some pumpkins.
Just a few...
