Friday Flowers. Fall Roses and Dahlias

Happy Friday!

Sunny skies, warm daytime temps and cool night time temperatures have made this week the quentessential fall weather here in the Bay Area.  Our North Bay wildfires are under control and we are hoping for some rain. In the garden leaves have started falling, and though it’s an up hill battle to keep the garden clean, I keep sweeping  the front stoop only to have more leaves drop right in front of me 😀🍂🍂🍂!  My flowering bushes on the other hand are still holding on tight to their leaves and blooming away, and my veggie patch is looking lush and happy. I even see pea pods on the pea seedlings I planted!

This plum colored dahlia is still blooming and a few roses are also sending out buds and blooms.  I cut some flowers to enjoy indoors.

  1. I think this is even prettier two weeks later, now that it has finally started raining. The weather sure was excellent while it lasted. The rain is excellent too, but in a different way. I saw that there was snow on the far side of the Santa Clara Valley.

        1. Wow! Can’t wait to thear all about your new adventures in Sweden! Are you moving back there permanently? And your daughter will go to school there and stay with you? How excitting!
