Hard to believe that it’s the first weekend of autumn; the year is, once again, whizzing by and the hot, humid summer days are already just a memory. There seems to be a lot of purple in my garden this week – the New England Asters are in full bloom everywhere, as are the Colchicum, while dogwood and some Viburnum leaves are already brilliantly orange and red.
I did have one horrible shock this week though – and I’ll get that out of the way first:
That’s it for me this week – we have no frost forecast for the next two weeks so no major cleaning up to do yet. I do have a few hundred bulbs to get in and will talk about those next week, perhaps. I’ll be resting my legs for most of the day, today, trying to keep them fresh for the Prince Edward County half marathon tomorrow. I may talk about THAT next week, as well!
Until then, enjoy the fall (or spring, if you’re on the other side of the globe!) and click over to The Propogator‘s site to link to wonderful Sixes from all over.
