I have a nice view of some hills in the distance over my back fence. They're tall enough to have snow on the peaks in winter.
My lilies are also nearly finished and my dahlias started blooming about a week ago. I love dahlias, but so do the gophers, so I don't have as many as I'd like. I have to plant dahlias in cages, which is something of a hassle, so I tend to buy things the gophers don't like quite so much instead.
My begonias are my sign that fall's coming. Here's one of the begonias in bloom now.
