The weather is turning towards a warm fall, and the plants are putting out new leaves and new fruit every day. The weather and the growth don't seem to agree at all. I'm glad they're happy!
The odd summer is continuing onward, bringing more fog and a morning with light drizzle. It's still cooler day by day, almost like summer decided it was done out here before August is. Whichever way the weather decides to go, many of the plants are growing like it's spring again.
Summer's going through mood swings and the plants are trying their best to adapt. We haven't had rain in quite a while, but fog has been rolling in each day and leaving a mess of dew all over the place. The plants don't seem to mind - but they also don't seem to care.

It looks like the plants are focusing on growing leaves this week. The flowers are sticking around, the plants are the same height - but there's just so much more green! I love it.
All the flowers are finally showing life! The second heat wave seems to be agreeing with them, and they're coming up... well, not roses. A bunch of other things instead! Even the ever-dominant thyme is flowering. There's plenty of new leaves to share.
