All of the groups of morning glories seem to be thriving in the cooler autumn weather, They keep throwing out hundreds of buds, their leaves are clean and green and free of the powder mildew prevalent on most of the annuals and perennials, and the blooms stay open for most of the day. The wild rose bushes growing in the background, fading more each day, are more than thirty feet high and reaching for the tops of the trees. Once their leaves drop, the remaining vines and thorns take on a very Snow White and the Enchanted Forest appearance.

I know I've posted several photos of this group of glories, cosmos and red geranium, but they constantly draw my eye when I'm outside. In this photo, all of their stems just seem to melt away, leaving the flowers dancing on their own. Soon enough I'll be shooting snowdrifts and the ice floes on the shores of the Sound.
