Seasons Change

For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.  For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad ~~ Edwin Way Teale

You could be forgiven for believing we are still in high summer around here — for one thing, it’s 100 degrees today!  And there are summer blossoms galore all around the garden…

…but if you look closely you can find signs that change is coming …

So while the work of the garden will still involve a lot of clipping and watering to maintain summer’s blossoms for awhile yet, the clues are there — that it is time to start planning for next year.

Garden time is always right now, next month, next season.  Enjoy the fullness and bounty of summer, while planning the work of fall — and all the while dreaming of the spring to come.
