Autumn Gold



The heat of the summer put a damper on
my outside walking. Since the temperature
has dropped a bit (down to the 80's), I have started back.

This past week I decided to take a peek at the
secret garden I found last spring.
I really didn't expect to find any
 flowers due to the drought. 



I was surprised to see
pretty gold and yellow flowers everywhere.


They covered the field and road with cheerfulness.


Even the golden bitterweed is a welcome sight
in a mostly dry and brown landscape these days.


We will be taking a few days off to
visit the Ozarks this week.
I hope to seem more fall blooms
and some pretty color on the trees.


I will share what I find when we return.


Have a wonderful weekend filled with
sunshine and autumn gold!
