Chronicaling the lunacy of taming three acres in Tidewater Virginia, one square foot at a time!

"Gardens... should be like lovely, well-shaped girls: all curves, secret corners, unexpected deviations, seductive surprises and then still more curves. ~H.E. Bates, A Love of Flowers

Bedraggled but still hanging on, some leftovers in the beach garden still putting on their best faces...

Long gone are the peppers that grew nearby, the marigold, maybe from seed, looks sunny yellow on a grey day.

The asparagus fern looks downright festive with it's showy red berries.

And last but not least in a sunny, protected spot, these impatiens have been blooming since the summer, the coleus is spindly but hanging on.

As you can see I have a hard time pulling things at the end of the season. At the beach it's hard to tell the season sometimes...
