I am flabbergasted. This morning I thought of the sweet olive blooms that come in the fall. I thought it too early, that they would come late October. Then, surprise!
The sweet olive blossoms and this water lily are about it for us now. Both usually go far into fall and winter here, but, remembering the wisdom of Shel Silverstein: “Anything can be…”
My world is a most beautiful place, even without blooms. These are taken from a morning bike ride around the neighborhood:
I’m posting these early for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, held each 15th of the month. Tomorrow, jump over to May Dreams Gardens to visit other participating bloggers. My thanks to Carol for starting this enjoyable event and continuing to host.

I’m not familiar with sweet olive, I’ll have to “google” it and read up. Your photos are beautiful; they look so quiet and relaxing.
Beautiful and tough like Southern women.~~Dee
Really like your snapshot of the light on the oak tree. Beautiful. Happy GBBD!
I agree…as beautiful as the blooms are…that view of the neighborhood looks so lovely and tranquil!
i love sweet olives, when i used to grow them in colder climates they would not bloom until january so what a nice surprise you get them this early…congrats
Came home this noon and was greeted by the strong sweetness of the sweet olive at the back door. What a treat! Especially considering how dry we have been this year, and how negligent of watering the area.
I love the photo if the sun through the trees; the light is so beautiful at this time of year!
