The weather has certainly cooled off and it should be around 40 degrees(F) here tonight. I took some time today to fill up my birdfeeders and to put a block of suet out for the birds. There have been alot of Chickadees and Cardinals lately. I also removed all the Moon Vine growth and harvested LOADS of seeds from them. I will be doing more bird watching I guess with very little growing in my gardens. The roses have really been blooming like crazy but beyond that....not much.

Red Spider Lily --Lycoris radiata
Not many flowers are blooming this time of year so this Red Spider Lily was a nice addition.

This is a pic of the iris that I got for my birthday in 2004. Normally it blooms around the end of April. Not sure what has happened with its internal clock this yr but it bloomed on Oct. 1st.

I harvested a good bit of the Moon Vine seed pods today. Now the next step is letting them dry out and finding homes for them. They would be really pretty over a trellis. :-)
