Okay, okay...I have not been the faithful correspondent I imagined I would be back in spring. But, you'll forgive me, right? I did get my hours but I didn't spend as much time in Mary's Garden this year as I would have liked. For those of you who might not know, the Mary Washington House is the home of George Washington's mother. I am part of a group of volunteers who work in Mary's garden. Here's a list of some of the previous posts on the MWH I've done.
Anyway, last post's fig reminded me that I had some pictures from early September to share. You'll see exactly what I mean in a minute.
It's always changing in the garden (like any garden) and I find things that I've seen over and over take on a new look. The crepe myrtle petals on the brick were just very striking that day.
Mary's vegetable garden (Isn't it lovely to look at?)
The zinnias were proudly waving and very eye-catching:
Sweet Autumn Clematis...note the posts in front:
Now you know....
Here's an upward view of figs at the Mary Washington House:
And, a not-so-great picture of a very tasty and sweet fig...yum!
Now you know why I want to wrap my tree this year (the one at the MWH doesn't have to be wrapped...)!
