Autumn Has Arrived

"The season for enjoying the fullness of life --
partaking of the harvest, sharing the harvest
with others, and reinvesting and saving portions
of the harvest for yet another season of growth."
Denis Waitley

We thought frost was going to arrive later in the week so JEJ began the autumn ritual of moving the plants in the greenhouse today. It is always difficult to decide what comes in and what has to suffer from the frost. The greenhouse just won't hold all the geraniums, spider plants, petunias, wandering jew,and begonias. When I arrived home JEJ was carrying the aroma of scented geraniums on his shirt. I knew the move had taken place. As I moved through the greenhouse I inhaled the earthy aromas of the summer plants. Yes, autumn has arrived! Sweet William was thrilled to have his favorite resting spot restored for winter.

  2. IEG: It can't be autumn yet. Reminds me of the song, "Wake me up when September is over." HA! Oh well. Say, we are going to the McManus/Behrens play in Spokane on Saturday. It should be a real hoot!
