Last weekend it was time to check out the
garden. Fall is here but a few plants are holding
on. The Hollyhock is in it's glory.

There was a lone Geranium.

But the Coral Bells were beautiful. I am always
fascinated at how an insect's colours so often seems
to compliment the flower it appears on no matter
where I see it.

"Fair Quiet, have I found thee here,
And Innocence, thy sister dear!
Mistaken long, I sought you then
In busy companies of men
Your sacred plants, if here below,
Only among the plants will grow ;
Society is all but rude,
To this delicious solitude."
