Late Summer Sunrise

Late summer sunrise


Sunrises are always so very beautiful even on days that are not perfect.  There is something about waking up to see the new day.  Here are photos capturing one day in the life of a new morning – taken at the end of August 2022.

 Good Morning

Wanted to check out the Autumn colors in the garden so took a quick walk around on some of the paths at the Gardens at Waters East.  Here are the colors of today.

Enjoy all the “soft” colors of the plants.

The end is coming – soon there will be frost then snow.

One Singular Sensation - Hibiscus

One Singular Sensation - - Take a look at just one plant here at the Gardens at Waters East, the Hibiscus.  This is the variety known as “Hawaiian Punch”.  Looking in closely; lots of interesting detail on these photo taken recently.

This Hibiscus is not winter hardy here in Zone 4 – 5

so it was just brought into the house

and now resides in the home’s Sunroom.

Nice place to be if I may say so myself.


Enjoy a little view of Summer.


So easy to miss this detail

if not looking closely.

Obviously - loves looking at the lake!

Morning Clouds

Got up early one July morning, even before the sun was fully out.  Thought these photos of the clouds over Lake Michigan at the Gardens at Waters East set a “mood” for the morning. Different from the normal sunrises that are posted here on the blog.
