Endings and beginnings...

Ate my last strawb this morning. On the other hand my mum is going to be big and beautiful soon!

Cleaning up for Fall

As the maples begin to turn, I went out on the patio to sort through my jungle on an 80+ degree day. Doesn't that sound silly? It's hot out and leaves are falling. The weather is confused. Not the trees. By mid-August I couldn't wait for fall and I'm still feeling as if I'm waiting a little...

I trimmed, rearranged, watered and harvested.

My lemon balm.

My jungle all cleaned up and organized.

This was yummy by the way. (:
Don't you love the frilly edges of the petals?

Perfect to go with my basil!

Even little ladybugs are still around.

Look at that chrysanthemum! I cut on it twice throughout the summer and it's still huge.

End of summer bounty

More tomatoes! I spent a little time trimming my tomato plant so my current tomatoes can get more light.

The pears came from my blackberry picking excursion last night. I believe they were on county property so I gathered some. Pretty exciting!
