before the frost

thought i'd make one more little posy from the garden flowers before we pull them up for the season.  cosmos and sweetpea are two of my favorites, in all their colours.  vase by alison cude.

this is from july, when the bees and tomatoes were busy.  we were infested with a horrible, persistent pest called whitefly this season, and ended up pulling up all of the tomatoes and peppers, despite all of our eco-friendly insecticide attempts and dollars.  apparently they are one of the hardest to get rid of, even with the chemical stuff, and regularly destroy crops.
