Here, There, Everywhere....

Greek Oregano and the multi-colored Roma's
Roma's of various shades, shapes and sizes...
Hydrangea, soon to be cut back and dried....
The new Girl on the block...she talks and she talks and she talks...
Pawtuxet Cove...picture perfect..
Pawtuxet Cove, looking North...more picture perfect...wish you could smell the sweet/pungent aroma of low tide...

Dismantling the garden, stake by stake, initially takes a bit of courage, but as with planting, once you get going, you know that is is a good thing. The cherry tomato stems and leaves had gone from brown and falling off, to moldy, to still growing. I pulled them all. What was amazing to me were the depth of the roots...who knew? The Roma's still have some life in them, so, for the most, they will stay for a wee bit longer....and of course, the Greek Oregano gives and gives. I have a new feline friend from down the street who kept me company all the while. She is a real beauty, extremely vocal (did I mention that she is a she?).

The early fall colors and foliage are not to be missed, so here are a few photos from round and about town, here, there, everywhere...

Wonderful harvest from your garden...sadly it is that time of the year, dismantling I mean!

You now the new Girl on the block rather looks like my Kitty, only my Kitty is much fatter, but she does get insulted when i tell her she is getting fat... :~)

Love the photos of Pawtuxet Cove...I'm sure the "aroma" is worth the view!!!
I can't believe the wonderful weather we've had this fall...still sun and t-shirt weather??? This has truly been the most wonderful spring, summer and beginning of fall that I can remember in a very long time!!!
Hope we can enjoy more temperate weather for the rest of the fall and into winter...
Be well my friend...
Cheers
