This is usually the time of year that the goldfinches are going crazy. The sunflowers and cone flowers are going to seed and these little guys are going nuts. I wish I could capture them on video because sometimes there are 6 or 7 at a time swarming around the flowers and it looks pretty cool..
Elsewhere in the yard, we have our first Rose of Sharon bloom. I picked these seeds from my mom's plants a few years ago, at Christmas and they've finally matured on their own. So far, I have some white ones. I hope to have some purple also.
Finally, over the weekend, I was able to get the second side of the garage painted. The mosaic work is lagging but I have a little time before the snow starts to fly.
