Of course the tomatoes,peppers and eggplant are just dreaming… I still have a few tomatoes and peppers that are about ready to be picked…but soon the plants will be gone.

And the wisteria has finally completely stopped blooming…we had a long stretch of blooms this year but all good things must come to an end. Soon the leaves will all fall and I can begin to prune it back. Right now I’m waiting for a little bit colder weather at which time I have a few plants to move to sunnier garden spots and a lot of pots to move to more protected areas.

I was so excited about you naming your garden that I almost missed your bloom day post. It looks and sounds like October is still very colorful in your garden.
