late summer blooms

every morning when i open our front door, just for a moment, i have to stay still and admire the wonderful dahlia greeting me.
it's one of the fancy once as you can see....

and the dark blue flower pedals who climb up on the trellis of the stairs are a gift each time i walk by. thank you summer, thank you mother earth for nourishing those plants and letting them grow for my pleasure!
the night's are already getting cooler but we still get lots of sun and warm days, lots of time to enjoy the walks to our community garden and harvest more of those delicious tomatoes and green beans.
we will be heading north for a long weekend camping in the main woods. once more a little vacation from city life! the plan is to be back early next week...
