The Tomatoes are Done
Updated December 2005

End of Tomatoes
Just before the big rains. We finally pulled them out. This is what they looked like before they disappeared.

Fall Blooms Already
September 2005
We've had a cool August and the Japanese Anemones, and Fall Crocus are blooming plus the Tricyrtis' are still happily flowering.

Tricyrtis in bloom

We've had very happy Tricyrtis this year. The flowers look like little orchids - I purchased every variety I could find and add to the collection as I find new ones. They seem to thrive in part shade.
