Fall comes to the Island

It’s November, but a killing frost has yet to arrive on Long Island. A few annuals still bloom bravely, their days numbered. The trees have achieved as much color as they do without frost – much yellow, gold and brown, but reds are rare. Many clear days, and none of the destruction that visited New England two weeks ago. We are grateful for the slow transition to winter!

Summer Flowers

A string of warm sunny days and now we have an abundance of summer flowers – from annual bougainvillea, petunia, geranium to perennial peony, lily, rose. June is the best month in the garden!
