Sssh, sssh! The plants are asleep. At least that’s what it seems
like. And yet, this is the time of the year when the garden is ablaze with colors. Literally. With golds, rust, yellows, brown purples, orange,reddish green. Wonderful mix of colors – transformation that happens when fall is here.
This is also the time of the year when some plants are storing energy to re-awaken come spring and burst into yet again, another display of vibrant colors. Just wait. Your peonies will give you a riot of colors come spring! And you don’t even have to treat it tenderly like roses (and I have over 30 varieties in my garden). All the spraying, and cleaning, and pruning, and fertilizing, and on, and on.
By the way, Benjamin, thank you for giving us CZ, our cat. This is her first year anniversary with us. My home is totally transformed from absolutely no cats to having CZ sleep in my bed! She occasionally lets me pet her, but for the most part, she is a very independent cat. Here she is.
