Most of my days have been mad dashes home to grab the berry bucket & go pick for an hour before coming home to spend time with the ducks & then head indoors for the evening. Night is falling much sooner than I want it to!!

Curry in the mornings is something I'm quite enjoying! If you stumble across a curry plant in the greenhouse or nursery, I highly recommend getting a couple. I'll have to take a photo to show you - they are not an edible plant - but they certainly smell like curry!

The bright orange shows up really well against all the greens of the gardens & I starting to see just how many seeds I've planted all over the property in all the patches of orange spots I'm seeing.
They require little to no attention. That's my kind of flower!
|~ marigolds ~|
My one pot of marigolds is right outside my back door. I don't want the ducks to eat them (unspeakable horrors occurred the last time the ducks found marigolds...) so I've got them up on the railing. I should move them to the front of the deck, but we have entered 'the construction zone' again & there is saw dust everywhere for the time being. Better they remain off to the side.
Again, a great colour combo for the early start to Autumn. Bright yellows & warm oranges... I rather enjoy these more than the pinks & purples of late spring. Plus the flowers & plants seem to be much more robust than those lovely dainty spring blooms.
Let's wait to see what's blooming in a few weeks! Change is constant in the gardens...
