The sweet smell of autumn...

Ah, the days appear to be cooling off...
The autumn smell is, but in the air...
From the potager, ladies fingers...
Long, slender, beautiful...
Alongside... dried, over-ripe corn kernels that escaped the harvester's eye...

Thin, somewhat 'undernourished' kangkong greens...
Yet, delicious when stir fried with black beans and garlic...

Same goes with the zucchinis...
Merely finger-sized, when harvested... 
Beyond that, they shrunk and turned bad...

'The Pride of India' stands tall in this season...
Blooms so pink, radiant even in the rains... 

And to Diana, this post is dedicated to...

Many, many thanks for the seeds...
of zinnia, sunflower, basil, hollyhock...
and of luffa, amaranth, capsicum, carnation...
