15 Sep Bloom Day for September!

September 15th already! The leaves are starting to turn here and there’s a chill in the air. It’s all a little early for us, and I’m afraid the drought we’ve been experiencing is going to dull the autumn color. But fear not, for it’s Bloom Day, and there are many beautiful things to see in the meadow and the nursery. So without further ado, may I present the floral faces from my garden!
