cream of the crop
actually, the last of the crop. now that the weather is sunny and warm again, i'm stealing every moment i can to put the garden to bed for the winter. today i was working in the vegetable beds and cutting down some perennials. my labors were rewarded, as always in a garden. i got a handful of peppers, 3 more gourds and an armful of flowers to make bouquets. the tall vase has cosmos,fall blooming anemones, callicarpa berries, purple hyacinth beans, blushing limelight hydrangea, baptisia foilage and verbena. the shorter vase smells delicious. it has bronze fennel fronds, au tumn joy sedum, baptisia pods, nandina berries and one coral geranium blossom. rewarding and appetite inducing. pork and peppers for dinner?
