Frost on the Pumpkin



It is starting to feel like fall is here.. with winter just around the corner...... ohhhhhh we will most probably have a few days of Indian summer........ but the night temps have been dropping down well below 10 degrees...... (which is pretty close to 50 degrees F) and that to me is just a tad cold!!!

Fall has never been a season i enjoy.. i know many do.. with the trees all turning fall colours and crispness in the air.. the dead leaves crackling under foot....... and therein lies my dislike.. dead leaves.. dead plants.. bleak dark colours.. the sun disappearing earlier every night and sleeping in every morning........

So yesterday while the house boy cleaned the upstairs, i pulled out the annuals.. cut back some of the summer growth...... potted up the geraniums and just did the fall work in the garden...........i tried to find some joy in the size of the Chrysanthemum plant covered in buds and blooms........ but it just isn't the same feeling as when my daisies peak out from the winter soil........... no matter how beautiful the mums are ...........



The geraniums have been moved upstairs to the office window........






And the garden angels are lined up ready to move to their winter home (where that is.. i still haven't decided....... perhaps they will decide and just migrate for the winter)



And the last job of the weekend....... Sir set all the automatic timers back so the lights come on earlier ......... and now we start to bed down for the winter months......... and dream of spring to come................

My depression starts on June 21st when I realize we're starting our too rapid slide toward winter.
