Closer to the ground, one could consider our autumn colors at “peak” … at least on this plot of the Intracoastal where swaths of yellowing marsh reeds and fluffy blushed muhly grass sway against a deep blue backdrop … plus these sweet little mums for our front porch pot. Next, a pumpkin, because there’s only one more week to Halloween!

Here’s to a healthy, happy week — be sure to check out my links round-up before you go.
