Tools tucked away, pots turned over, last plants in the ground. Sounds like your garden is pretty well prepared for a long, cold Wisconsin winter.

Yikes! No mention of long cold winters is allowed this early in that season!

I hear about freezes and feel like I'm living on another planet - it's dropped about 10 degrees since the start of the week here but we're still hovering around 90F. Rabbits come out to attack plants when it snows? They're not white rabbits sporting camouflage, are they? Your soft yellow fall color is very soothing.

Beth @ PlantPostings

Yes, true. It will happen whether we're ready or not. And I'm not ready! Heck, it was 76 a week ago! (I know our weather is notorious for being changeable, but still!) ;-)


Flaxen: what a beautiful word that is. It fits the warmth and grace of the color in your garden.

Pretty darned chilly here too. I can't believe we had a frost before you did. It is supposed to be in the 30's every night for days now. Brrr. Your redbud with the skirt of geranium is very pretty. I think your amsonia is the prettiest with the thread-like leaves and the color it displays this time of year.
