Quick Wardrobe Change...
Here is Autumn dressed for warm days and chilly nights, in seasonal colors.
And here is a sneak-peek at what the well-dressed garden will be wearing this winter!
How things can change in only six days time! The first photo was taken on October 5th. The second was taken this morning. The wind blew fiercely and the snow fell relentlessly for much of the day. Only the warmth of the earth kept the snow from accumulating significantly. In my gardens, icicles dripped from rose-buds and snow bent the heads of the sunflowers as if in they were in earnest prayer. Perhaps, like I have been, they were praying for a few days of bright, glorious Indian Summer before October ends.
