This is always a little bit of a sad time of year out in the garden...partly because I have no real motivation to try my hand at winter gardening and partly because the fruits of summer are pretty much all gone by now. The plants are long and stringy and starting to die off. It's a far cry from my photos taken in the spring.On the other hand, the light is changing, which means there's some beautiful light for pictures, but no longer enough to bleach the color out of our roses.
I'll have to get some bulbs in soon. I'm looking forward to the holidays, but already dreaming of spring!
