It's still exceptionally warm, but that means tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant are doing better than historically 'normal' here in the mountains of Western North Carolina.
At home in the Piedmont, the weeds have been abundant, requiring quick dashes down the Blue Ridge Escarpment to weed, harvest, and water a few remaining pots (planted to withstand whatever came, but...) So far, so good.

And we're delighted with how the new green trim complements the adobe color of the cedar shakes, and a toned down orange makes an excellent contrast.
One of the blessings of this house is the view into the forest, seen directly through the front door (look behind my gardening companion-aka Tim).
The forest view in back of the house is even more welcoming now, with the orange posts now green, and with a reconfigured railing.
