Summer Returns?

We have such a beautiful autumn weather here in Croatia. September and November were not so warm for more than fifty years. It was 20°C today. I finished clearing the flower beds last weekend and collected all the fallen leaves. But, I have to mow the lawn again. Never mind. That is the only thing I have to do before the winter.

Japanese anemone seed heads

I felt almost sorry to cut down some of the flowers because it still looked good. Japanese anemones bear seeds. I never tried to grow them from seed probably because they spread themselves well by roots. The Japanese anemone may be pretty invasive and persistent. I need to keep it under control.

See how warm it is?  The Japanese Quince, Chaenomeles, is blooming again this year.

The two survivors out of seventeen. Soon, I will pick them up. I hope the next year will be better.

Mr. Squirrel keeps coming to my walnut tree. So hard to catch it with the eye of my camera.
