With this year finally winding down there is much to do yet along with making plans for next year. The gardens however seem to have a mind of their own. With that warm spell a couple of weeks ago the roses have taken off again making their last showing here and then off to dormancy land for a winter snooze. The colors and textures throughout the beds are extraordinary. Multiple branches of colorful leaves, seed heads big and small, and the last of the perennial flowers.
I am going to miss these days of lasting sunshine and cool brisk air. Soon the snow will begin to fall and blanket the earth. It disappoints me because me of all people are running around the house singing “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”. Totally not time for this type of music quite yet. Maybe after Thanksgiving is over. But, for now let’s enjoy these last beautiful days of fall and admire the beauty in the garden.
