Life of Abundance

Today -- September 23, 2015 -- is the first day of Fall (Autumn). Everything is still green; the fall color is yet to arrive in full galore though it has started peeking out from here and there. The temperature fluctuation has started with night temperature dropping to below sixties; day temperatures are hovering between 75--81. The garden is beaming with abundance though there has been, and still continuing, a drought here. A sample shown in the picture below with a big container of pears, greens, okra and peppers.
Every day I go and pick up an abundance of pear, peppers (both hot and sweet), tomatoes, beans, okra and other greens. Like a treasure hunt, I go around digging around the garden and find potatoes. We do not have to buy potatoes until next summer. Sweet acorns, pumpkins and gourds were/are also in good supply this year. Corns are still ripening on plants. And my garden look practically like a forest (well, I'm trying to be nice to me; it looks like a run-down garden with weeds :-P). When my tiny garden wakes up in spring and starts giving, she knows no bound.
Personally this summer has been a year of ups and downs; but my garden has been a sight to behold; fragrance to smell; blooms to enjoy; critters to observe and wonder; sweet fruits to enjoy; and fresh vegetables to nourish our minds and bodies. Neighbors and strangers, walking down the street, complimented on my garden. It's all because I went overboard this year and planted (and still planting) lots of new plants and bulbs, and that will be a topic for another post along with pictures. And the show has not stopped yet. The summer blooming is over. But, now perennial mums, asters, sunchoke flowers, dahlias, roses are stealing the show. Below are pictures of some of the many blooms happening in my garden now.
Sun is bright; air is warm; the overhead canopy is in full-swing; bees are buzzing; birds visiting the feeders, and the life is in full-swing, already ready for all the adventures of that are to unfold in the summer of 2016 in my garden.

  1. What a gift your garden has been ( and continues to be )... Life IS good! I don't garden any longer, but I remember how lovely it was to gather the results of all the hard work! ( and I remember it really was a lot of work.). Autumn is such a wonderful season ...
