September - Review 2012

Lots was still going on in the Gardens at Waters East this past September.  As usual, it is really difficult to choose only a few photos to capture the month here in the gardens.  So many to choose from!  All the following photos have never been posted before today.

Starting on September 1st with the clouds from the northern edge of Hurricane Isaac just above the gardens at sunrise that morning, then moving on through the month, many plants were continuing to “do their thing”.  Yet the fact is, September is the transition month from Summer to Fall.  Temperatures are changing and cooler nights are now common.  The end is near!

Enjoy the photos --- a review of September in the Gardens at Waters East.

  1. Nicely done. Your gardens look great. A little piece of heaven. Thanks for sharing home. That Cope's Grey Frog is a cool catch!

  2. Love Mr. Frog...and what a beautiful morning glory. Do they volunteer for you at all?

  3. I'm glad I don't need to worry about hurricane clouds.

    Boats like the one in your picture pass us here too - but I don't know what they carry.
