Today was the first day in a few weeks taht the sun did not blind me on my morning commute. Winter is on it's way.
Also today, the D. Landreth Seed Co. Heirloom Bulb Collection: Garlic and Flowers arrived. Wow. This company is the oldest seed house in America, purveyors of fine seed since 1784. Wow. That's awesome! Their catalog is beautiful, and they give dates for varieties where known, which is quite useful to those of us into historic gardening.
