It's still summer

This flower, aptly named September Charm, is a  Japanese Anenome. I think it is one of the best fall perennials.  It grows between 1-5 feet tall and has almost saucer shaped flowers. When most other flowers are on their way out this plant will shine.

    Another fall favorite, is the purple Aster.   

In spite of the fact that my calender shows me it's nearly October, I'm still believing it's summer with
the temperatures in the mid 80's.  By the looks 
of these raspberries they are in agreement. 

I need to hang on to the warmth of these days. 
However, I can't overlook the obvious.  The day light hours are getting shorter as the sun sets earlier.
