Autumn is happening…

It has been a glorious fall despite the dryness.  The garden is throwing its last big party before the frost and freeze predicted for this weekend.   The  tomatoes, peppers, and basil must be picked.  The geranium pots, elephant ears, dahlias and brugmansia need to be covered at night.  I can’t quite let them go yet … too much color.

The Brugmansia decided to put on a big show the last few days… this is its 5th year. I will overwinter it in the basement.
