Daisies add colour in simple jar.
As summer draws to a close (Labour Day is the unofficial end of summer), some flowers remain in the garden while others have long faded away.
In my compact yard, daisies, zinnias, hydrangeas, begonias, geraniums remain in bloom. I note the flowers that resisted pesky and destructive Japanese beetles that chewed the leaves off my new serviceberry tree. Netting will solve that issue next year.
For more than a couple of weeks now, the change of seasons is felt in our area. The strident sounds of crickets are most striking as night falls. When I was a teacher, I knew that the routine would soon begin again when I heard those crickets.
There are still chores to be done before the first blast of cold sweeps through from the north. But for now, I am happy to simply contemplate and paint a few daisies in a jar.
More florals in my collection.
