The recent tradition around here is that the garden gets 'put to bed' on the Thanksgiving weekend. It's generally still warm enough that the task is not too onerous. Saturday saw us composting all the annual flowers. I'm just not interested in watering anymore. Sunday, we put all the garden furniture in the shed and tidied the garage a bit in order to make space for the furniture painting project.
The Crazed Lilac. This is a Persian Lilac that blooms at the oddest of times. It actually has an early spring bloom, a later summer burst, and then a few odd "crazy" spikes in fall.
Nighty Night little flowers!
