Busy season

Some of my annuals are just hitting their stride. The zinnias, above, are a tiny, but striking, patch of color.

The nasturtiums are lovely and smell ever so nice. They always remind me of my grandmother, who grows them every year and always has a little bouquet in the house.

And then there is the Nigella damascena, or love-in-a-mist, which is always so striking because of its curious look.

The garden finally produced a fair amount of produce, some of which is still coming in. The carrot patch is probably the finest I have ever had, with some of the carrots looking mighty fine. And the peppers had a standout year.

I can only hope the frosts hold off a while longer.
