It's that time of year

Summer is winding down and the late summer wildflowers are in full swing. Here where we live we have mostly wild carrot and chicory. Both are flowers that I remember from when I was a kid. The blue chicory is a nice bit of color along the vineyard road.




Yesterday's weather system brought a few sprinkles and some gusty winds, but not much else. It stayed relatively warm and now that it's moving on we're expecting a sunny week. More yard chores to do!
