Fall is all around us. We see it in the beauty of the leaves changing colors and, the long shadows of the sun and the tremendous sunsets we've been blessed with recently. However, we also see it in the dying summer flowers and withering gardens. Autumn is here and frost is around the corner. Before Jack Frost hits the last of the garden, I wanted to share some shades of fall.

And then there's this ugly thing on the other side of the yard. My once gorgeous tomato plant that was taller than my husband, is now slumped over with dying leaves. Any gardener would be tempted to put it out of it's misery, except that it's earned it's stay by giving me 6-10 tomatoes EVERY day still! They may be small, but they're still red and juicy.
