We have begun to feel a touch of fall (cool mornings and warm afternoons); although September can have days that take us back to summer.

I've been taking photos similar to this in the last few days... although it's still hot here the plants keep on changing, it's that time of year. A nice photo, kind of sad but it still looks pretty in its droopiness. Beautiful color and detail!
