green after rain
green after rain would have to be my favorite crayon in the box with carnation pink running a close second. the autumnal light has shifted and it always makes me feel like i have just put on my glasses. it actually feels different and makes me ready for halloween.
after class today, i was inspired to take some photos of the garden after the rain. i just looked at the befores taken last june. the garden is really taking shape.
sunday morning found me putting in fall vegetables and planting seeds. i have never planted kohlrabi or lacinato kale before. with each cabbage seedling planted, there was a promise for a dish of stuffed cabbage rolls. i hope the fall potager is more productive than the summer one.
this garden has a different flavor than my last one. it seems more desert cottage and less modern tropical. all i know is that it feels like home.
