Autumn has arrived in its full glory and is now preparing to exit our southeastern region of CT. Old man winter has been teasing us with a cold day here and there and Jack Frost came late this year. But all in all it was a glorious fall and with its late growing season this year flowers were an added bonus. The leaves have mostly fallen with a few stubborn trees here and there. Piles of them gather around the perennials which still need to be cut back, the perfect home for small critters to nest. I have begun the task of putting the gardens to bed and removing the bedding which entice the mice to nest in, making them a nice cozy home with nice perennial roots to eat. I have a passion to garden, thus there is lots outside to keep me busy far in to this Autumn season!
