Fall is here, in spite of the warm temperatures of the last few days. My little mailbox garden is still going strong, though looking a little the worse for wear these days. I don't know how many minutes I spent pulling grass from between the plants this summer, but it seems that for every one I pulled, two more sprouted up.
But, the stars of the garden are the Fall flowers. My gardens are kind of sparse, when it comes to these. I'll have to try and fix that next year. But, the Mums are going strong, and will be in full bloom in a few days. In an earlier post, I mentioned that I lacked the intestinal fortitude to cut mine back as much as I should, and, as a result, they are kind of scraggly.
Soon, the leaves will turn, and the flowers will fade, hiding until Spring, when the whole cycle begins again.
