Last Week's Walk In The Neighborhood

Much hoped for cooler days and beautiful nights were the perfect conditions for a walk in the neighborhood earlier last week. Zinnias, sunflowers, honeysuckle, sweet autumn clematis, and other beautiful blooms greeted me in the yards of neighbors along the way as I walked. The heat has returned and thus my walks postponed, at least until falls approach can be felt with crisp cooler air. Trees know the summer is coming to an end as acorns have started falling to the ground and tree leaves start to drop. It comforts me and makes me smile to think of no air conditioning, putting the garden to bed, gardening indoors, and resting from summer gardening chores.
Laying on the side walk just for me. A keepsake from my walk.
Acorns have started to fall. Squirrels better get every one to store up for winter before they all get crushed under foot.
The neighborhood post office. Prepare for a long wait when you go in.
Okay, lets go look at the zinnias.

They're beautiful.

Neighborhood Garden

That jungle of plants are tomatoes. It was a bright day and my picture taking not so good. Look at that collard plant by the gate. Can't imagine it was planted there on purpose. Probably self seeded.

Kind of hot for lettuce although it's time to start fall lettuce. 
Look at the corn. The cobs look full. Hopefuly raccoons don't eat it first. They will know when it's ready.

There are several groups of fig trees. I didn't see any figs on this group.

Raspberries or blackberries I'm not sure. They were loaded but the berries don't look like they fully developed.

I get herbs and other products for Maplewood Nutrition.

My favorite pizza in the neighborhood made fresh.
They have good jerk chicken.
The back of the library, my destination. Should have called first because it doesn't open till noon.

Neighborhood message board.

Lots of figs.
