Don't get any funny ideas!

Tri-colored Pin Oak Tree

Recall if you will, my pin oak with the bi-colored leaves. Only one side of this tree turned a bright burgundy. Well, it took some time, but the rest of the green eventually turned too. Took long enough!

Improved Hanging Baskets

I've improved my hanging baskets ever so slightly--which oddly enough they are no longer hanging. They are, however, sitting around like any ordinary houseplant on the window sill. I suppose you're wondering why I'm bothering to fuss with my hanging baskets now...going into winter.

Pretty Coleus

Really? You have to ask? I thought you knew me by now.

Ghost in the Garage?

Not an apparition, just ghostly lights
Okay, I wasn't going to say anything about this--I mean to say, it doesn't have anything whatsoever to do with gardening-- but it's just too weird to ignore. I do believe I'm being haunted.... by a ghost and not just any ordinary ghost!

No, I'm not kidding.

Now, before I say any more, if any of you have been reading my epic novel-in-progress Violet's in Bloom, you'll know I have a couple of ghostly characters in prominent roles. Of course, that's fiction. But what happens when fiction suddenly becomes not-so-fiction?

Green Thumb on Overdrive

So, it's come to my attention that I have a super-charged green thumb--or perhaps it's just on overdrive. Whichever it is, it's something awesome to see. I'll show you what I mean.

You may not believe it--I know I barely do and I saw it happen!-- but this tiny little spig of a geranium--a fake one-- just up and started blooming almost the instant I stuck it into soil. Literally not more than a week later it spouted flowers. Talk about green thumb, huh? And that's not all!

Rescuing Death Row Annuals

I will assume you recall my pilfering rescuing of a bunch of death row annuals.
Purple and white double petunia

I will also assume you know of my plan to use them in my hanging baskets. Well, even if you didn't know nothing about any of that, you've been caught up in this short but concise summoning-up*.

Full of Potential

So, there I was clearing the rest of my garden stuff off the porch and I find this pot full of potential.

Okay, it's just soil, but as any gardener will tell you, soil equals potential! DUH!

Odd Color Change Pattern

So, this is my Pin Oak in the throes of an odd color change pattern. It has never done this before.

Caught in the Act

 Recall if you will, just the other day when I came home with some ill-gotten goods--a grocery bag full of pilfered plant cuttings, to be exact.

So, Tom sees my ill-gotten goods on the kitchen counter and says, "You just took these? Didn't anyone stop you?"

Photo Contest!

 Yes, a Photo contest! No, it's not my photo contest, but I thought I'd tell you about it, just the same.
Cute, but will my wheel barrow fit in there?

It's over at Uncle Mac's Garden Shed where you can never tell what odd-ball character will show up to teach you something about veggies, gardening, dinosaurs and even WWII war ships. What? You haven't been there yet? What are you waiting for?

Don't Judge Me!

Oh, go ahead...judge me all you want. Who am I to tell you not to? Why would I ask you not to judge me? Well....I've been naughty again.

Seeds of Autumn

As you may know, I've been collecting the seeds of autumn.

T'is a fun time for me, even if I do know the winter winds are just around the corner...or rather coming up the ridge behind the pole-barn before battering into my garden.

What a change!

 As you can see, the sky was blue as can be here one day last week, but little did we know that would change and what a change!

Guess what I've been doing

Come on. You can guess what I've been doing. Here's a hint.

Nothing? Well, I'll tell you then. I've been looking for seeds... ripe and ready-to-pick ones and I found plenty and this time in my own garden. There's a surprise!

More Last Flowers of the Season

More of the last flowers of the season...if you can stand it.

The roses--bless their tender petals-- are blooming away, as if the cooler temperatures didn't bother them at all. I'll hate to see them go.

Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Lighthouses of the OBX

A mostly silent tour of the lighthouses of the OBX (As the natives call it) -- the Outerbanks of North Carolina to the rest of us.

Last Flowers of the Season

T'is a sad time of year for me. It's the time for the last flowers of the season. Oh, dear!

Never Happened Before

This may come as a surprise, but we have never--as long as we've been living in the Poconos, some 24 years-- been able to get through September without a killer frost. Really! It's never happened before.
