Before I continue with more coast pictures--
I feel compelled to post some photos taken in our garden.
but I don't know what they are.
I am quite happy with that:)
Not quite ripe concord grapes being picked by my DH--
YUM! I LOVE Concord grapes--Niagara grapes too!
Apparently our kiwi thrives on neglect--
we seem to have quite a few this year.
I really, really hope they get ripe in time.
I LOVE kiwi!
The PNW had spring in winter,
winter in spring and
a really short summer!
I just hope we get some more ripe ones before early autumn ends
and the freezes begin!
I believe this is the culinary type.
And lemon balm...
what can I say about lemon balm??
I am SO not kidding!
It has spread out of the pot it was planted in,
spread to the ground nearby,
spread to the barrels behind it.
It obviously LOVES our garden and
since it is pretty and smells wonderful
I don't really mind at all!
Would not consider a summer--early autumn without planting some of it:)
I believe this is Sweet Shirley.
I think it is really pretty!
And last, but not least,
autumn colored Japanese maple leaves.
and I don't remember them being this orange last year...
BUT I LOVE it:)
We also have quite a few lingonberries (some have a lot of red on them),
evergreen huckleberries (if the birds haven't eaten them yet),
very dehydrated blueberries (sigh),
one sorry looking Swiss chard plant,
and a few yellow raspberries!
Blessings from the PNW,
