My garden is full of reds and oranges and yellows right now, just not from changing leaves. (Had to throw in a little purple, too.)

    Douglas, thanks again for your reply. there are a few small garden centers near me. I'll go and check them out. I admit I go to the 'box' stores because their prices are good. they are selling all the veggies now and I have to force myself not to buy. hands in pockets. :) val
