It's Fall!

Happy 1st Day of Autumn!
It really is a beautiful day here. Clear blue skies, a warm 77 degrees at 2pm with a slight breeze. At least one of the weekend day forecasts were correct.
I was out with Reggae a little bit ago but the neighbor's cat was out loose in the neighborhood and Reggae doesn't approve. So, before he noticed her I scooted him inside. I'm sure he doesn't understand why I'm keeping him inside, but it's better this way.

While I was out, I noticed something I've only seen once before, my sweet potato vine "Blackie" bloomed! When I saw it happen a few years ago I thought it was so cool. The nursery told me that means the sweet potatoes were ready to pick. LOL, not mine, I don't think so. But...this is the pretty blossom she offered.

What a pretty bloom! I've never seen a sweet potato vine. It is a perennial? Happy Fist Day of Autumn to you, too.

What a beautiful flower! Happy Autumn to you too! I'm hoping that this summer weather will last for quite a while though.

I will tell you that my vines bloom and when I clean out the pots I have very good sweet potatoes that we have eaten. I am looking forward to my "crop" this year too! Happy Fall to you also.
