Rain has settled in here in the hills so this gardener is staying indoors.
I think I would be staying indoors now anyway since we have Lions, Tigers, Grizzly bears, Black bears and Wolves running loose north of us. Yikes! The primates are still locked in cages inside the house, thank heavens.
(Well maybe there were no Buffalo’s)
A local big game keeper who has had trouble with his collection of animals getting loose from time to time was found dead and all of the cages to the animals were left open (by him?) so there was big game running around in the northeastern part of Ohio in Muskingum and Licking counties. Law enforcement officers and zoo officials were hunting them down but many had to be killed to keep the population safe. A sad fate for such magnificent animals and for a frightened neighborhood. I for one think Ohio needs to get some better laws about who can keep deadly weapons on four legs at their homes.
Sadly this may be the catalyst that gets the laws written and passed now.
Anyhow……. in the garden this week (nothing quite so fierce)there are still some roses blessing me with some last blooms of the season.
“Prince Hendrich or Henry” Anemone is still putting on buds and blooms.
These are the last of the blooms on the “Queen Charlotte” anemones. I cut the rest down and gathered some seeds from them. It has been blooming since early September so has been a wonderful addition to the garden for late color.
The Purple Clustered Campanula that gave me a few Alba white blooms from their seeds has another bloom. As the bloom withers a tinge of the purple shows up on the white blooms.
That is about it in the garden for this week.
I had to share this car with you that my daughter and I spotted in Chillicothe last weekend. It is and advertisement for the Old Canal Smoke House there in town. The car is painted like a pig. I just captured the backend of the pig or car. See the tail and the license plate? LOL! I wonder if there is a snout on the hood?
