Six on Saturday, 10-21-17
It’s the foliage’s time to shine, so the garden is slowly falling asleep. It doesn’t have the sparkle of spring or the color riot of summer; yet the slowing of growth gives me time to catch up. I am enjoying the weeding, trimming, and general tidying. The temperature is kinder, the bugs are mostly gone. Glory days, indeed!
Little lady goldfinch had no problem with me being so close. I must not have seemed much of a threat!
This tea cup garden stake is going on fifteen years and still makes me smile. We found it in Niagara Falls, Ontario, on a family vacation.
The geranium survived a herd of deer passing through the yard yesterday. It’s one of the bright spots left as the season winds down.
For a reason unknown to me, the dill seed I planted in the spring has finally decided to grow. Better late than never?
I cut the tradescantia back in late August when it was looking ragged. This vigorous plant has sent up new blooms to take advantage of these last warm days.
Cleaning out terra cotta and dreaming about next year. No matter that they are twenty years old; I still love these classic pots.
