Here's what's been blooming in my garden for the past two weeks. It seems more like spring than fall. The weather's been fluctuating between hot and cold, wet and dry. The plants are really confused. The bur oak is leafing out and putting out catkins, the lime tree is setting fruit, and both fall asters and sunflowers are blooming. If you would like to know the names of any of theese plants, click on the photo to go to its Flickr page.
