November – winding down

November is almost over, and I can’t believe I haven’t gotten around to posting.  We did travel to Texas for a week so that interfered a bit.  I got a lot of gardening done too.  The weather was pretty nice so many of the chores I had been postponing actually got done.  Every spring I think I will dig out the mass of asters, rudbeckia, thistles, phlox and evening primrose that have all grown together in front of the back fence.  This year I actually did it and moved all the plants to areas where they can happily spread.  I planted 100 daffodils out near the road, dug up and moved the amsonia, and moved a bunch of other tall asters.  Can’t wait to see what it all looks like in the spring.

In the meantime, the beautiful leaves are gone and its a bit bleak outside.  The fog the other day cast some lovely light though.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  I am always thankful for my garden.  It provides a place for inspiration, frustration, solitude, deep thoughts, beauty, food and digging in good old fashioned dirt.
