September flowers and wildlife:

I can count on Nasturtiums from spring through fall.  They look a little like water lilies on land.

My neighbor passed away this summer and her son continues to be our neighbor.  When I see these beautiful roses in her yard I think of her.

Pineapple Sage.  The hummingbird was checking these flowers out this morning before it flew off to its favorite zinnias.

Feels like fall – grasses, goldenrod and sedum.

All the flowers fell off the caryopteris, so the bumblebees have moved over to the goldenrod.  They seem to sleep hanging under the branches.

Morning Glory

Coming home from work I found this leaf shaped insect by the back gate.  With research I found it was a katydid, and realized these were the cause of all the noise in the trees this past summer.

From the kitchen window I watched this squirrel with a nut in his mouth climb the laundry pole.  Maybe he is looking for a good place to store his food for the winter.
