OOPS!

I might have been too hasty in suggesting the introduction of the The Camellia Walk . It’s really not ready for its close-up! Quick peek down below.

                                                                     

 And there is only’ Hana Jima’ blooming there now.

                                                                   

 Sparkling Burgundy,  below, (there are 3 of them in the garden) is located in the circle of friends, and the other two are not part of the camellia walk at all.

                                                                   

My friend Marsha has Camellia japonica ‘Daikagura’ blooming now! (thanks for the photo Marsha.)

                                                                    I have been out gardening from dawn to dusk. Weather is perfect and much needs to be done as one season ends and another begins.

                                                                    

The cutting garden along with the potager  has been seriously neglected this season due to health issues. So now its  time to pay the piper . I do this with the ‘weed dragon’

                                                                                                                                  

and no matter how careful…there is always some collateral damage.

                                                                  

 Still, I use this tool. For large neglected  areas … perfect.

                                                                   

 Eggplant & basil still producing in the potager. But  salad greens must be sown now & cabbage, kale, onions & garlic. I hope I am not too late on the winter veg.

  1. Interesting “weed dragon”! That’s some serious weed killing! With a property as large as yours it seems almost essential. The camelias look great. Hope all is well and you are feeling better.

  2. i know i should be outside working in my garden but i’m compelled to be inside and baking. i feel so lazy after reading this. really b/c our so. calif. climate i do my fall clean-up in november. surprisingly, my garden still looks pretty good right now. wish you could come over and have a slice of warm banana pecan bread and a steaming cup of hot coffee.
