Loving the weather of early fall

    There are some signs of  an early fall, and I’m loving this weather. The colorful butterflies are around now lighting on the cone flowers, the peppermint, and the black-eyed susans.
    There are so many bees on the spearmint you don’t dare walk to close. Some of them are huge black ones, and I don’t know what kind they are. There are lots of small sweat bees that don’t bite, and I’ve seen lots of different colored double-winged dragon flies around. It’s been so dry that there isn’t any clover much to speak of, so no bees there.
