These are last of the garden pictures for the season. It was a beautiful Autumn. The dogwoods and crepe myrtles were spectacular this year. The sourwoods and sassafras were gorgeous red and orange, Even the forsythia put on a show. Most of the leaves have fallen now so I'll wait patiently through the winter, looking at garden catalogs and dream of next years garden. I do want to try to have some tomato plants next year. If you've been following, you know I battled the deer with sprays, hot peppers and chili powder, wind chimes, cages. Nothing would stop them. I learned from a neighbor that she used ivory soap cut up in chunks around hers and that worked. So next time, I'll give that a try.

|Crepe myrtles line one side of the driveway|
|This is an azalea. No, really! It blooms in the spring, off and on in the summer and then this show in the fall|
