Hard frost

I'm waiting.
For the frost to come and take away allergies.

Today I cut the party dress and put the beds to bed.

The gardening season is drawing to a close... Slowly we're finishing up with clients, each garden bed prepped for the long winter ahead. There's nothing there that makes me more sad than to cut down a plant that is still in bloom. Last week out at one of my favourite gardens, a giant anemone plant ("party dress" huge frilly pink and white blossoms) was in it's glory days. Thankfully, it was granted pardon- and this morning with just a few faded blooms left, I took 'er down.

I can't wait to start planning my gardens this winter.

I know one thing for sure.

There won't be any roses.
