Wordless Wednesday

This small aster, a native, is growing out of a crack in my driveway between the driveway and a stone wall.  Above it, there are yellowing leaves of Virginia Creeper.  They should be a brilliant scarlet this time of year but the drought has affected everything.  The aster should also be about 3′ tall.

One of the few small trees still performing as it should.  Notice how even the hostas beneath it are wilted. This is a witch hazel.

The last of the late season hydrangeas,  this is a species paniculata grandiflora.

And finally the last of the tomatoes.  These were picked October 22, definitely the latest I have ever picked tomatoes.  The variety is Sun Gold.

  1. Where do you live? Do you do live talks? I ask because I am chair of the program committee for my garden club . I live in West Hartford CT. From your pictures and comments I think you live in New England. Joan Martin

  2. Hi Joan,
    I am quite nearby to you and I do lecture quite frequently. If you click on the tabs above my photos, you will be able to see my lecture topic and a bit more about me.

    I have also tried to email you directly but it may be going into you “spam” folder.
