It has been a week in the garden that is just about as close to perfect as it gets. Over the last weekend, we got exactly five inches of much-needed rain, which totally negated the need to do any watering this week. And then the weather turned mild and full of sunshine, golden days that could hardly be improved upon. The only thing that might have made it better would have been if the garden fairies had pulled some weeds for me. Oh, well, we can't have everything, I guess.
The garden is actually full of blooms on this day before the beginning of fall. Let me show you some of them.
It's less than twenty-four hours now until autumn officially reaches us. At 9:49 A.M. Saturday, our time, the autumnal equinox will arrive. I hope to be out in my garden ready to greet it.
Happy weekend and happy gardening!
