Beautiful Season

I'm glad I didn't remove the cypress vines during garden clean up a few days ago. Today I saw a straggler hummingbird. The summer resident hummingbirds left a couple of weeks ago.

Test Your Botanical Knowledge
This herbaceous perennial with graceful, branching stems 2-4 feet high from a clump of dark green, 3-5 lobed leaves covered with soft hairs, flowers with 2-3 inches across, semi-double in white, pink, or rose blooms in the fall. There are many named varieties.
