I took these shots as I was doing my walk last Friday morning along Penfield Beach. I love late summer here in Connecticut. Since we're by saltwater, we have all kinds of grasses and drought tolerant shrubs like butterfly bushes, lots of different sedums, russian sage, beach roses and countless colors and sizes of sunflowers and zinnias. It was a perfect morning, as it most of the time during this glorious month. This is my first attempt at a Picasa collage, and I added one picture twice, but hopefully next time I'll be better! These photos are also taken with my Iphone 4 because I can't take my Canon along on my walks. But the quality isn't too bad.
