We have had a wild couple of weather weeks. First the snow, then warm days in the 70’s and now reality has returned. Twenty-five degrees this morning. I took advantage of the warm days and got most of the garden clean-up done. Dahlias are now dug, dried and put away. The elephant ears and brugmansia are hibernating in the basement.

We always mow the meadow once a year

So everything is resting. No more blooms until spring but as usual there will still be beauty during the winter months.
