Closing this Summer's Porch Garden

Pre-garden, June 2013

After an uneasy and unusually cool summer, September enters with its fading light and chill, clear air.  And this summer's porch garden is being decommissioned in stages as I harvest the herbs and tomatoes. 

The impatiens, which I got only to fill in the holes between what I thought was going to be a fulsome kitchen herb garden, were one of the few the survivors of the too-cool summer.  Though now, I have to say, they are looking a bit gassed for it.


Every September our landlady provides two fulsome mums.  This year's editions are especially grand.

And as if to deny the upcoming Autumn solstice, the geraniums are presenting a voluminous profusion of second-wind blossoms.
