October Garden

October is pretty much the end of the gardening season here. Not much makes it into November. But the remaining flowers are beautiful.
 



October is also a great month to sit in the window, watching the great outdoors.  Not too hot, not too cold.

It's Fall


Although the calendar says it's just fall, a unusually early killing frost this year made it seem like fall a while ago.  The strange part was that the frost hit only our community garden plot -- all the flowers and veggies near the house are still thriving.




 And with the arrival of cooler weather, knitting has resumed.  Another charity knit in the form of the Demne sweater.  The result is cute, but wow -- lots of ends to weave in.

Late Summer/Early Fall

We're doing a lot of harvesting in the garden....in addition to the never ending tomatoes, the carrots and potatoes are ready.


And the fall flowers are out in full bloom....right now it's the clematis and hydrangea.



Next up are the chrysanthemums.
