Today was the day to put my garden to rest. It's always kind of a relief for me. . . to close down the gardening operations for the season. By October, I'm ready to put my trowel away (along with all the hoses, the garden chotskies, my patio furniture, the hanging pots. . . ).
First, though, I had to do my least favorite thing of all gardening chores. . .
For some inexplicable reason, I HATE planting bulbs in the fall. I never have been able to figure out why. But I just hate doing it! I love to have the bulbs bloom in the spring, though. So plant bulbs in the fall I must!
That out of the way, I put everything else to rest.
Now, with a clear conscience, I can shift my focus to knitting and bread-baking; soup-making and reading; holiday preparations and . . . damn. I still have to clean out those closets!
Some things never change. . .
