Somewhat sad, but doing OK.
It has now officially come to a close. The chilly, windy weather has arrived. There is no putting it off any longer, I have got to put an end to my summer plants. Most have held on and done their best to keep blooming and possibly because of all the rain (and not depending on me), have lasted longer than their expected shelf life. They are showing their age now and instead of letting the frost get them, I will be compassionate and put them to sleep in a more dignified manner. So as I dump them into the compost heap, I say farewell to them all.
Goodbye, Sun Impatiens, you grew to new heights.
Toodles, begonias, you were mystical in my Zen garden
Hasta la vista fan flower (Scaevola), you asked so little of me but gave much.
Chau Zinnias, you really brightened up the later part of the season.
Au revoir all you beautiful Hibiscus, you were magnifique!.
Sorry about that Picasso Petunias, you didn't make it though the summer. I tried my best to keep you around, but like me, you wilted in the blistering hot sun. I appreciated your splendor while you were here.
Arriverderci, Diamond Frost (Euphorbia). You were like snow in summer without the miserable elements.
Ah, Knock Out Rose, you will need to be pruned for the winter, and what can I say, you were....., well you know what you were.
|I have no idea what you are.|
To all the other plants I had (who's names have been forgotten) but brightened up my days of summer, Chau. I will welcome your seedlings back next year.
It is now time for Mums, cabbages and pumpkins.
I'll be back
