The weather's still nice. We got some rain the other day. Currently blooming: petunias, marigolds, million bells, morning glories. Nannyberries and serviceberries are in full color with oranges, reds, and purples. Mulberries and maples are turning bright yellow. Oaks are turning brown. The sycamore is shedding lots of big brown leaves. We put some on the flowerbeds. I'm seeing more sparrows at the birdfeeders, and once, a male cardinal.
