still a garden...

The tomatoes and basil may be toast but other things say "bring it on". It is a beautiful fall day here.

Aconite (wolfbane) - I keep it near the doors, of course.

Rose "The Fairy" - still madly blooming and next image allows you to see all the buds. This one is great but small. Blooms constantly from June to snow and sometimes beyond snow. One particularly warm December, the one in front near the foundation bloomed at Christmas.

Rose "Seafoam" - also still blooming. I brought one in to look at more closely. It must be admired. The icon is Eoin and if he was still alive I could not bring in flowers. He ate any flower in the house. He even consumed cactus flowers and the stems!
