Signs of Autumn

I got up far too early this morning and had exercised and showered by 6:00am.  I still needed to work on tidying up all the plants on the front porch, but on an early September morning that now required a light jacket.  I also had to turn on the porch light in order to work as the sun quietly rose in the east.  Lingering nights and cooler mornings - signs of autumn.  

Plant choices too reflect the changing season. My mother visited a garden center in Bend, Oregon and bought three asters and a new echinacea. The echinacea is called "Matthew Saul".
