Seventh Day Project: October crab apples

The crab apples on 'Molten Lava' are now gone thanks to the grouse -- five at once on at least one morning. Take a look at October at sillydoggarden.

Sci-fi flowers

Outside, the castor beans are toast -- ragged fragments of their former lusty selves. I cut some of the flowers, beating frost by a few hours, and am amazed at how long they're lasting. This photo was taken about two weeks ago and they're just starting to show some wear. Those are castor bean leaves in the vase, too.

Note to self: Grow more castor beans. This is the variety 'Carmencita'.
