Maryland Blogger: Recalling the colors of summer

Recalling the colors of summer

Recalling the colors of summer


As we approach the beginning of the autumn season, we miss the flowers and the colors of nature that were so common during the summer. The lilies in this photograph were blooming in June in Kentlands, our home neighborhood within the City of Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Earlier this week, I tore out a couple Yellow Straight Necked Squash plants.  They had began to slow down in production.  But, this year they provided literally dozens and dozens of squash.  They meandered so wildly, that my lawn guy could hardly get into my backyard.  But, it's that time of year when things begin to fade, and it's time to clear the ground.

Good morning Roy.  I hope the summer and fall colors will remain a bit longer in your area.

Hello Roy, the arrival of each season is an opportunity. New colors.  Different things to see. And experience.  We just need to take a moment.  And enjoy. . .
