There's wonderful beauty in the night garden. Beaming moonlight and glowing house light peek into crevices, paths and the secret evening hideouts of our daytime garden friends.
My heart gave a little thump last evening, walking near the pond; I had forgotten we had a new resident. No, he wasn't real, but for a moment, I thought he was. Stainless steel and life size, he is the most awesome belated birthday gift and I want to thank N, K and L for crafting it, and giving to your "gardeningbren" cousin!! She is just thrilled with this "fine bird".
On the other hand, it is sad to see the garden waning...leaves starting to fall, tomato plants drooping at the end of their season. Others are holding on though, and those of course, would be the German Gold's who are really coming on now....Golden tomato soup, salsa and sauce..mmm and we are getting a few hot peppers...perfect timing.
The nasturtiums are continuing to bloom their heads off, covering plants that are in demise.
Still promise in the soil..............
