To my great surprise, it is October and the garden has marched on.
August and early September were good months, with frequent rain, and I daresay things looked the best they'd ever been. Then I went on vacation and a drought set in, and the garden suffered in my absence. Now there's a chill in the air and the flowers are rapidly preparing to say goodbye. I knew autumn was on the march when I took my potted geraniums inside in a panic last night.
As this article shows, they'll need to be trimmed back a good bit. Will I have the nerve? Stay tuned.Posted at October 3, 2004 06:05 PM | az
