While we have had some really nice days here of late (meaning no rain), we have had a lot of fog that hasn’t burned off by the end of the day. But today we actually got some lovely sunshine in the afternoon. I hauled the boys outside to run some laps around the yard because they needed to burn off some energy and were driving me crazy. So I grabbed my camera and brought it outside to see if I could catch any fall colors. What I found were a few of the surviving flowers in my garden – here is a beautiful burnt orange dahlia that was still hanging on despite the previous rains and cooler weather.
