scenes from the garden

of many

still doing yard work, grabbed a couple of hours with german girl last night. but the sun sets so early, we were gathering tools in the dark. has anyone seen my favorite clippers? before i head to the bath and dinner, i want to look at a few moments in the late october garden. a self seeded castor bean plant, i weed out 1000 a summer and let one grow. next year i will have 1001. one of 3 ginormous mushrooms clumps from last weeks eternal rain. and the euonymus plant, turning redder as the temperature drops. against advice, i yanked out a boxwood to plant this, and i have never regretted that leaves, red berries. heaven on a notched stem.
