It was a great thing in this world where so many bad things are happening, to see this expression of love and goodwill. Portland’s famed Love Locks fence on Commercial Street, where once you could find hundreds of padlocks meant to symbolize everlasting affection, but after three years the powers that be– deemed the leaning fence unsafe, thus removing it 😦  I’m glad to have these few shots in remembrance of a little bit of Paris right here in our Portland.

IMG_0057Well, it’s official… I finally finished up down at the farm for this year. It sort of killed me to pull the remaining zinnias, cosmos, and coneflowers. I’m going to miss having my vases filled with fresh  cut flowers 😦  for the next endless few months.

I suppose I always have mixed feelings around this time of year when I’m closing up everything for the season, but the memories of a fantastic growing season remain in my mind, and the trials and tribulations with this year moving to my new farm, even moreso! LOL But that part is behind me now… next years garlic beds and spinach bed good to go. This morning I buttoned it up, mulching  all in just harvested salt marsh hay– a final tilling and top dressed the rest of the fields with cow manure seaweed compost to work it’s magic over the winter.  I even spotted my buddy this morning briefly and wished him well, until next April.

Tomorrow, in the herb garden, the last of the rosemary, sage and thyme will be harvested for a few winter remedies that I like to keep on hand. All in all, a great season! Boy, thyme does go by….. winter well.

VIbrant colorful blooms,transplants from Dad’s garden,
