    Planting out fall seedlings (and swamp sunflowers blooming up a storm)

    Photo-upload-417861?1414377791 Gardened until dark both days this weekend.

    Street Gardens 2

    Photo-upload-417689?1414284948 One of the things I enjoyed during my visit to Wales was what I call street gardens - the gardens in pots or large planters, public or private, that made streets more beautiful.

    One thing, then another and so on...

    Photo-upload-417538?1414023411 The one thing that lead to all the others was my gro-light which was not functioning. I had already made a sandwich lunch ready to go the studio and then I decided that I could not leave my poor plants in semi-darkness any longer. So I dismantled the gro-light to see if there was a loose connect...

    Buried in leaves

    Photo-upload-417635?1414193067 The forecast was for no rain and indeed the sun shone most of the morning. The temperatures were pleasant and i decided that I had better take advantage of the break between weather systems. Warm moist air off the Pacific is coming in waves keeping the temperatures up and the rain falling. There ...
