The light is changing and autumn is approaching. It's sneaking in, a bit at a time, slowly, everyday. I love this time of year because the roses are blooming their second bloom, the sedum is just beginning to flower and the ornamental grasses are in full seed. And my favorite rose of all, the David Austin english rose Pat Austin, is gloriously blooming again. It is such a stunning flower and the scent is absolutely heavenly. Unfortunately, its not very good as a cut flower, fading very shortly after it's cut. So I guess I'll have to just enjoy them on the bush. Somehow I think I can suffer through.
