Lovely sunflowers, bright, cheerful. The birds will have a winter feast--if winter ever gets here.

Our little creek on a pretty October morning. We've usually had one killing frost by this time, but not this year. Afternoon temps still in the 80s, and our winter birds haven't arrived yet. More on my LifeScapes blog: http://www.susanalbert.typepad.com/lifescapes/

Here's another of our Texas native grasses, blooming now and very pretty. Lovegrass, aka cane grass. It's related to teff, a grain used to make bread in Ethiopia & Somali.

Our native grasses are gorgeous this year. This one is Lindheimer's muhly, native only to the Texas Hill Country but increasingly available at nurseries. Drought-resistant, low maintenance, just beautiful.
