I thought I'd share a couple pictures from my garden, which is desperate for a good weeding. Gotta love
Fall wouldn't be fall without a mass of Brown/Black-Eyed Susans. I didn't realize these flowers spread. Nothing crazy, but they do pop up in other parts of the garden.
My Cape Breton rosebush is covered with hips this year. I wanted to bring home a rose bush from Newfoundland when I was there doing family tree research, but you can't bring plant life/soil off the island. I wouldn't want to destroy mainland Canada's agriculture. I dug this bush (twig really) from the side of the road in Cape Breton, it was actually growing in the gravel and would have been run over by the snow plow. They are crazy vigorous. In Newfoundland, in the old cemeteries, you couldn't not walk on the roses. Beside the rose you can see the rowan tree, or 'mountain ash' as they call it up here. It's been bright with fruit for quite a while now. I think we're having an early winter this year, at least that's what the plants are telling me.
