Rain has its own beauty.

Rain. The flowers are gone, the vegetables are (mostly) canned and frozen, but the rain still comes. It'll soak into the garden soil, help decompose the brush pile and compost bin, and still do the ground some good.

I'm mourning the summer farm markets already. I'll pick up as much as I can in these last few weeks. After that, all garden vegetables will come from the freezer. In the meantime, I'll start browsing the seed catalogs and setting up the new area for tomatoes. I love autumn, but the end of the garden season makes me a little sad.

These photo's are absolutely beautiful. Please tell La Petite for me! Is she going to school for photography? She should be doing some stuff for National Geographic or something!

I am with you on mourning the garden season. However, I am happy to see the fall colors and also look forward to snow covered trees. Call me crazy:)
