containers love the great weather and who could resist mums and primulas at a dollar a pot?
agave neomexicana with salvia argentea
rejuvenated back garden beds filling up with seedling wallflowers, hesperis, lunaria,salvia turkestanica and nepeta nepetoides. really too much of some very .good things
in 68 or 69 i bought a beaucarnea in a three inch pot at the grocery store. it's now 6 ft. tall and flourishing. so about 45 yrs.
crocus autumnale and e. blue curls
great pics matt-FG my oakleaf keeps making promises it doesnt keep
wonderful to have late season heat wave-reno is going for a record for latest first frost. from the garden this morning
my wallflowers have self seeded for years-they got knocked back the year it went to -18F but a few survived. i wait until the flower stalks are completely dry and then cut. the entire plant back by about half. the seeds then germinate toward the end of september. my best ones are in a raised bed that is completely shaded from nov til early april. i do believe that clay is absolutely deadly for them
RB whens dinner? nice spuds.

datura metel from seed- actually a volunteer that i moved from veg garden. another of those plants that has(to me) an unpleasant smell-others say it smells like honeysuckle.
red tail hawks live across the street and keep the birds on their toes. the stellars jays have learned how to imitate the hawks cry and raise hell with all the other birds.

It is, indeed. Quite how a sunflower got planted under the gutter remains unanswered, but I have my suspicions involving birdfood and birds. Feed the birds a lot. Get sunflowers in weird places.

sunflowers a mess this time of year but i let them grow for the finches. i do wonder how many they eat-they fling them about so-volunteers everywhere though not yet on the roof.
