Starting to Decay

Starting to Decay, originally uploaded by susanvg.

The garden has lost its lustre. Many of my perennials are past their prime with fewer blooms and more dead heads to prune. But I like the cooler temperatures, the blue skies and the crisp mornings. It's that in between time when the mornings are fresh and the afternoons balmier. If you leave the house in the morning, you have to dress in layers, that peel off as the temperature rises.

Soon it will be time to cut some of these flowers way back and make room to plant some tulips for spring blooming.


  1. Gardens are kind of like people. Both have their own character. They also possess a certain beauty, no matter what stage they're in.

  2. Our gardens are beginning to look the same! Time to plan for next year.
