The Garden has Taken a Giant Leap into Fall
The weather really has been quite benevolent up until yesterday. And today, although we were spared the snow that they got an hour north of here, the garden is a pure reflection of that cold and wind. Stocks and leaves that had stood so upright and strong just days ago have collapsed overnight with the freeze and thaw. Things I'd waited to cut back because they were so pretty, now have textures that mush when I apply the clippers.
