Today was a beautiful autumn day. Cerulean blue skies. The fading warmth of the sun, turning light to gold. Crisp, clean air.
I took a turn around the gardens, flower and vegetable. Gardens, although shamefully ignored, still providing beauty and bounty.
The last of the pink and white roses, peeking out amongst the hips.
My chrysanthemum, still with perfect blooms.
Leeks lined up like soldiers down their row, just waiting for their call to soup pot duty. Although you must ignore the weeds.
And a wonderful surprise, my first time at trying to grow...
Brussel Sprouts! Ready for harvest just in time for Thanksgiving, Bouchard & American style.
Enjoying the here and now,
Chris at Red Gate Farm
