The Basil is Spent

September at the homestead, the garden is winding down.  Thoughts are turning to compost.  You know, spreading a blanket of compost on the garden so all is cozy till spring.




Meanwhile, there's this lovely hydrangea.





And this tree will soon look like this.




My hands smell like bleach from cleaning clay pots.






Happy September all!

    1. Shade is a beautiful thing. Then the leaves become beautiful compost!

  2. I love autumn. Not overly fond of what follows, though!
