The Last Rose of Summer, Gerlach, Nevada

The shed in the next yard. In the foreground are green tomatoes (ready for frying) and a spindly rose. What is interesting to me is the pattern of decay of the roof of the shed, and the blowsy effect of the shed, the greenery tilting this way and that and the dried plants echoing the roof.

Betty, the lady across the street has a 'one for the books' garden which she works all the time. Hollyhocks grow well in Gerlach. Life at the End of the Road is not bad.
