>It’s The Practice Room’s 1st Birthday! Just a few shots of some of the late-summer/early autumn blooms. The black-eyed susans are in their last weeks, but it was nice to come back and find flowers, after being away all summer.
I have to admit I don’t know what these volunteers are, but they have delicate lilac blooms and hard seed pods. The cactus plants have done very well out on the terrace, where they get lots of sun and a good breeze (which keeps them from getting too spindly and weak.)
They’ve got another month, more or less, until they all get brought back into the apartment, before the first frost.
