Hi everybody! It's me, Autumn!
Luckily mom and I were out in the garden snapping pictures before we had a whole week of rain!
This is Connecticut's state flower - the Mountain Laurel! Isn't it just beautiful! That's the stone foundation of our house in the background!
Sleeping Giant, where Maggie and Mitch hike is loaded with them! Maggie and Mitch are dying to go for a hike!
I just love the color of this iris! It's so cheerful and pretty!
The purple iris seemed to last quite awhile this year until all of the rain made mush out of the blossoms!This is the gas plant! They say that a flammable oil exudes from the leaves and the seedpods and if you light a match near the plant, it will ignite and the plant will not be damaged!
Mom and I have never tried this before. We do know that the plant has a lemony fragrance!
This plant is called Baptisia Australis. It's actually more blue than it looks in this photo!
We have had such lousy weather lately! Too much rain and not nearly enough sun! And it's been very cool! Our temperatures were 44 degrees this morning! Mom put the heat on! It's mid-June!
See you all next Wednesday!
