According to the calendar fall is here. Have you noticed? I’m not convinced. Early each morning I step outside eager to revel in that almost imperceptible atmospheric shift that signals autumn’s cooler, less humid weather. However, despite shorter days and the southerly migration of the sun. But I have yet to feel exhilarated. The abundant rains of earlier have disappeared and, at least in our garden, everything growing seems to be begging for attention and water.
Whatever the weather there is a lot to do in the October garden, so get out there, assess your landscaping and develop a plan of action. Perhaps focus on planting for pollinators. The most important thing to do in your garden is to enjoy it! So, if you don’t want to devote lots of time and effort adjust your landscape plan accordingly. Happy Gardening!
