It was good to see my garden again after almost 2 weeks away. Not a whole lot has changed, but the Only the Lonely nicotiana is taller and my one and only sunflower plant is blooming!
Fall is in the air...yesterday it was in the 40s all day, with wind and rain. But no frost yet, thank goodness!
Oh! And a few of my hyacinth beans are actually blooming! They don't compare to Mr. Jefferson's of course, but I'm happy just to have a few blossoms!
The Four O'clocks are really at their loveliest now!
Just for fun, I decided to take some pictures of the gardens from upstairs yesterday. It was interesting to see everything from a different perspective!
And here are some more close-ups...
Someone had a feast on my broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage while I was away. :/ Most likely a moose...
But on the bright side, I'm getting so excited about these pumpkins! I counted 12 a few days ago. The white one is Dishpan Cushaw, and the buff one is Long Island Cheese. I also have some New England Sugar Pie, but didn't take pictures yet.
Well, I should go get back to work...more later!
