Fall Garden

This describes what my garden looks like right now....
a tumble of flowers no longer in nice little mounds but overgrown and full.....
Vegetable vines climbing one into the other refusing to stay within the boundaries of the raised beds that I planted them in....
Herbs aplenty and full apple and pear trees.....
Smiling sunflowers and happy mums......
The lovely scent of roses fill the crisp evening air.....
White blossoms glow under the full harvest moon.....
Tomatoes still ripening on the vine.....





























I love my garden in the fall......I don't worry too much about the upkeep at this point, I just enjoy the bountiful harvest of Vegetables, Fruits, Herbs and Flowers.
This is also the time that I harvest seeds for next spring.....even though I am enjoying this time in the garden when it's almost time for it to go to sleep for the long winter.
When spring comes I will want to be prepared for the awakening with a wide variety of saved seeds for more abundance next fall....
and the wonderful circle of planting & harvesting continues.
To Everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven......
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which has been planted.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

Your garden is just wonderful....I wish I could say the same of ours..but central oregon is not a great place for one. I am content with my delphiniums this year and my one peones actually bloomed. cherry
