Fall – a time of renewal in the garden

It used to be that fall meant the end of summer; now it means a return to reasonable gardening weather again! Trays of plants that sat in the driveway all summer are being disbursed throughout my gardens. The hummingbirds are still around, appreciating every hyssop, salvia, liatris, and penstemon still in bloom.

This is a great time for garden “editing,” as well. Plants I’ve kept for sentimental reasons have finally been pulled out, composted, or given away. Digging out that unwanted greenery has opened up prime real estate for new plants I’ve been dying to try. Fall is a time for renewal!
