Exposition Park: a rose

 photo rosenov302014_zpsa5f85d13.jpg

Just one rose here but there are plenty in bloom in the Rose Garden at Exposition. If you are local, please be aware the gardens close January to March for pruning so you've got about month left to enjoy the garden and the blooms until March of next year.

I don't know what the name of this rose but spotted it while walking next to the Rose Garden at Exposition Park, downtown Los Angeles. It was after one of the early rain showers today. We should be getting substantially more rain in a few days.

An abundance of black chile peppers

My summer garden is just about wound down except for the black chile peppers (chile negro), my first year growing them. This plant has done well, mostly because the critters in our garden did not munch on them. So what do I do next? I have to figure out how to harvest them, dry them, and then use them, probably in a mole recipe.

The last tomato

We have had the warm weather return again, Santa Ana conditions for those who are local, and so I remain on the fence about what to do about the last tomato, still hanging in there.
