A Brief Respite

This morning it's only 63 degrees in Colorado Springs...30 degrees less than the last few weeks. It feels wonderful. Even though autumn is more than six weeks away I am ready for it. New additions to the garden this week these gorgeous striped dahlias opened, fuzzy sunflowers and the phlox bloomed. The pink phlox has a wonderful old-fashioned rose fragrance that lingers in the herb garden.
