Fall Violet

A killing frost is a possibility tonight and later this week, so Rudi and I headed down to the garden this afternoon to pull out the last of the Thai basil and pick any peppers that were big enough to do something with (I have dozens of pepper nubbins on the plant still, so I’m hopeful for the forest will offer enough buffer to keep them alive a while yet. This is somewhat early for a freeze here, lately.)

I still had a few flowers on my lavender, and the violets that have popped up in the garden this fall are still providing pops of color amidst the fallen leaves I keep on the ground to insulate the roots.

We also helped ourselves to fallen figs and persimmon from the trees by the park. I don’t know who planted fruit trees there, but we appreciate the bounty!
