Late November Garden at 1508

I am enchanted by the garden right now–  our first and only  persimmon of the season from our young trees is ready to pick,  tender sorrel and baby curly mustard greens are at their very best and we have been enjoying them in salads nearly every day, fall roses are in bloom and mixed in with them are deeply colored rose hips, wild porcelain berries in all shades of blues and purples are one of my favorite things to include in flower arrangements this time of year, all the leaves have fallen off the fig trees and the bare branches are dramatic and without the leaves the garden feels expansive, the oak leaf hydrangea leaves are vivid nearly neon red, we are using the thriving red ribbed sorrel and curly parsley to season our favorite fall vegetables…
