Summer Flowers Coming To An End – With Sweet Mysteries for My Senior Mom

by Kaye Swain

Summer is waning, fall is fast approaching, and my senior mom, grandkids, and  I'm already in the midst of Autumn bliss as we look at the lovely leaves changing colors, 

Autumn is calling - fall foliage has started

more than a few already drifting slowly to the ground,

FALL - Autumn leaves in our backyard

autumn/winter berries popping out, 

These red berries are another harbinger of fall and autumn coming soon

and mysteries abound, but one is solved – turns out this little lovely is…

Mystery plant number 1 for my senior moms gardening activities

a Strawflower with a hint of red for Rednesday!

My Sandwich Generation family thinks this Strawflower is so cute

However, we have yet to figure out what this pretty pink posy is?

If you have any suggestions, we'd love to hear. My senior mom loves her gardening activities and would love to figure this puzzle out. In the meantime, have a lovely end of summer and beginning of autumn!
