slideshow: appreciating september's offerings
WITH THE FIRST COLD NIGHTS (we hit 41 degrees F Monday!)

September Garden Slideshow
CLICK ON THE first thumbnail to start the show, and toggle from slide to slide using the arrow keys on your keyboard or the arrows beside the captions. Note for best viewing: If you “zoom in” too much in your browser, or are on a very small screen, or both, you’ll cut off the bottom line of the captions (and much of the vertical photos themselves as well).
