We have been gone for several days, and had a rainy windy day also the first day we were home. I was too tired to race out to the garden anyway so good the weather was crumby. Yesterday and today I did race out there however to get things in shape as fall garden is a favorite of mine. Wind and rain had arranged things differently then they were when I left. Does nature really know about arrangements then I?
BTW (I just had to look up then and than in the dictionary) I hate to make mistakes and seem so _______ fill in the blank.
Anyway back to the garden, so much mess, so much weeds, so much vegetables. However about the vegetables so nice to just go what you want for a meal. Lille sides of cucumbers salad, fresh sliced tomatos, fresh greens, and wonderful green beans it just makes a nice meal. The chili is wonderful from those tomatoe, added grated carrot, and a little mashed potato to thicken and let it rest a day before eating.
But, best of all are the flowers, the color, the bouquets, the sedums and hydrangea are so pretty now. Cosmos, dahlias, and the mish mash of it all combined, as I feel panic as the growing season here is getting short. Tonight the sun was setting and our leaves have not turned that much, but, the slant of the light gave good color to the garden and also my camera does not see weeds, it is better then a scale that sees everything. (painting is on my mind)
