The Last Hurrah

October 5th, 2013

The fall asters are blooming, this is the last hurrah of blooms before the snow starts to fly.  The bees are busily gleaning as much nutrition as they can for their long winter naps.

I have a good amount of this lovely plant blooming in the flowerbeds and around the edges of the woods.  It’s not the neatest or tidiest plant, but it sure is nice this time of year.

Eventually, the plants in the flowerbeds will be moved to the woodland edge, they definitely seem more at home in that location.   They will be replaced by something that isn’t quite to floppy.  The good thing is that I’ll still be able to enjoy them and so will the bees!

Do you have anything blooming in the garden? 

Reading & Watching

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
