The Garden Whispered "Fall"

Last week the garden whispered fall was coming even though the temperatures shouted "summer!"

The coleus sent up purple spires. 

Goldfinches flew formations in and out of the cosmos, landing to nibble seeds.

The stink bugs snuck back.

Sedum turned up the volume on its rosy heads.

The tomatoes dwindled in size and quantity. 

The starlings huddled on the power line until they got the signal to swarm and swoop to a new destination.  The chestnut hulls swelled from marbles to baseballs.

I'm sorry summer is winding down, but I am tired of picking green beans.
