When summer gathers up her robes of glory,

And, like a dream, glides away.
~ Sarah Helen Whitman

Autumn has finally come to Northwest Florida. The wind has been howling out of the North for several days and with it has come the cooler, humidless days of Fall. The temps have dropped into the 40s at night and have struggled to reach 70 during the day. A welcome relief from the heat and humidity of summer. Though I am sure that soon we shall be complaining about the cold and wishing for summer's heat. I took a walk around my garden and snapped some of the last flowers standing.

Pretty Guara

The last of the white star hibiscus

A few brave blooms have survived the wind on the encore azalea bush.


  1. Just logging on for the first time. Great blog. Lovely flora shots. I'm hoping you will give us some distance shots of your lovely bay area too!

  2. Hello GreensboroDailyPhoto,
    Glad you stopped by and yes I will definitely be posting distance shots of both the bay and Pensacola Beach. My favorite places to photograph.

  3. Lovely flowers in your garden and your blog is really beautiful.
