Early October

It's been several weeks now since I've had a gardening post.  This time of year is "clean up" time for the gardener - my least favorite time.  Lots of work to empty out all the pots of tender annuals, and store and over-winter anything that I think might have a chance of surviving my benign neglect.  It always seems overwhelming - a couple hundred pots to sort out - and sad too.  Not that there is not beauty this time of year!  The paperbark maple above and the seasonal wreath below make that point quite strongly.
