There was a mist hanging over the garden and it really did feel like the end of our good weather was coming to a close. Dull days are great for taking photos so I went out to take my last photos before I leave.
It would have been a great day for gardening except for the fact that it came on to rain quite heavily and by the end of the day there was an inch of rain in the gauge. I didn't get any gardening done.
A Virginia creeper is growing up the wall in the English garden. I leave it for its fall color. In front a wax myrtle, probably brought in by a mocking bird, has taken root. I have a feeling it is the southern variety so I'm sure I will have to pull it out soon.
At the same time my eye was drawn to more color and saw an oak tree has started growing in this same raised bed. It will have to come out before the fight to get it out becomes impossible.
I haven't watered for weeks, in fact since we went on stage 3 water restrictions so I am glad for the inch of rain yesterday.
Zucchini are still growing and the last of the tomatoes Juliet, just won't leave my garden. Not my favorite, but at this time of year who can be choosy. I am late with fall planting, which will have to wait until later. I only have beets, pak choi, napa cabbage, radishes, snap peas and rhubarb in the ground- all from seed.
