It is ten degrees and raining in Sidney today. I have a full five gallon pail of coffee grounds to spread. I think rain or not, I will be spreading it under the blueberries today.
I get very conflicted at this time of year. I really miss the gardening and the time I spend outside in the summer (which is substantial)...yet on the other hand, I love fall. Every thing smells so rich and damp and everything is so bright and beautiful. The winter plants such as my holly trees, the evergreen trees with their pinecones, the roses, pansies, snowberries and the winter vegetables look very lovely and have a warm cozy feel to them. Even if it's from the house.
Enjoy the quiet beauty that is autumn. It is special, even though all of us, the gardeners, lament the passing of summer.
