Still Green But Not For Long!



We were out yesterday raking the last leaves and mowing for hopefully the last time!  The top photo is the jasmine that is hardy for us in Zone 6.  It has a small pink flower, but it is unfortunately not good for tea.   I can't believe how it has grown!  We bought it at Well Sweep Herb Farm in New Jersey.  They have a great catalog and they still do mail order.  I am putting together my favorite mail order herb seed and plant list for The Herb Companion and will be posting that in the next few weeks.  The middle photo is a look into the upper garden overlooking the herb garden.  The ornamental grasses are taking over!  The last photo is of the Everblooming Cecile Brunner.  Still doing her thing!  I made a small bouquet for the table and I'll share that with you on the banner page.  Don't forget the giveaway!  Click on the link on the right hand side to give me a comment.  The contest ends this coming Wednesday, November 30th at 10 AM Eastern Standard Time.  Hope you had a great turkey day.  I'll leave you with our dinner.  We make a darn good turkey!

Even after a huge Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family, your plate of turkey looks so yummy - has got to be my favorite meal!

Still so green...I am green with envy...except for the evergreens, we are brown, brown, brown...

I love your bouquet on the header. Things are really greening up for us here, cooler weather and little waves of rain. Just in time for some 30 degree nights. I am slowly getting used to the cooler weather.

I'm getting so many errors messages when I try to comment! UGH! It is getting cooler as we speak. Probably 20 degrees cooler since we left this morning! Thanks for stopping by.
