Tomatoes Still At It

Another bright side of a delayed Autumn (other than the mild weather, of course), is that my tomatoes are still going strong. I have put to bed most of my garden in preparation for the cold weather to come, but left my tomato plants because they are still producing fruit. Even last night I went out and plucked a fresh tomato off a plant for our dinner salad. There is nothing like it!

Not Yet

This photo was taken last year at the Portland Japanese Gardens. I am posting a photo of last years pretty autumn leaves, because this year, the leaves have yet to change! I took a drive about half way up the mountain yesterday to do some autumn photography and was very disappointed in the still green trees and shrubbery! We seem to be WAY behind on our autumn.

Hardhack, which is part of the rose family, is a pretty common plant found around the lakes up on Mt Hood. The normally pink cluster of flowers (as seen in the background) dries up and looks like this in the autumn before spreading its seeds.
