The End of the Summer

 The Oakleaf Hydrangeas are turning brown.  Summer is waning.

 Teddy is always so busy in her garden.

 My carrots never got very big.  I guess I needed to thin them more than I did.

 These tomatoes are the size of softballs.

 Tomatoes and eggplants.

 Roma and cherries.

 It seems like every time I walk outside, I bring at least a handful of these inside. They ripen so quickly. I have them in red, orange and yellow.

 Peppers continue to grow. I haven't harvested too many peppers but the ones we've eaten have been wonderful.

 Okra, herbs, tomatoes and flowers.

 I leave a trails of clippings behind everywhere I go.  My husband picks them up.

 Another fire last night....it's football season!

 The corner of shame.....plants still not planted, fertilizers that have not fertilized.

My dead maple, slaughtered by a bad neighbor.  It put out some new growth which quickly died.  It will come down next spring and be replaced with a new pergola for privacy.
