The flower border on the front porch is finally starting to look like I envisioned it. This is the first year that everything is actually big enough to bloom on schedule.


We can play the “One of these things is not like the others…” song since one of these phlox is obviously purple instead of candytuft. Oh, well.


There were frost warnings last night so I moved the houseplants from their summer home outside back into the house. They are hanging out by the back door waiting to go back out. It makes the place look like a jungle.

If you are quiet and stealthy you can catch glimpses of the elusive Canus frecklus subspecies couchpotatous lurking.
