Hold On tightly

 I just had to honor one of my favorite flowers a last time.
Chicory (Cichorium intybus)
 She will leave with August when it packs heat and humidity, leaving September behind 
 A couple days ago I showed you the other side of this country road.
 You deserve to have both sides of the story.
Chicory, delightfully combined with Queen anne's lace, Mullein and a sprinkling of Black-eyed susan.
Aaahhh . . . . I shall hold on to Summer as long as it will allow me.
For, like the Chicory, it will soon be gone.

The blue always catches my eye along the roadsides.

Looks like a dreamy little country road bordered with a nice old fence and adorned with natures finest for one last show!

the night blooming cactus, better known as Queen of the night, is not hard to grow, it has been there climbing that tree for more than 22 years now and we have never touched it or watered it. where you are might have to be in a pot to take inside in the winter.

Chicory - one of my favourite wildflowers - gorgeous colour ! I think the sides of our roads are festooned much like yours.
