Planted 6 Burgundy Star Easy Wave petunias & 6 Purple Flash ornamental peppers in the birdbath bed. These were trial plants sent by the Ball Horticultural Company. Expecting rain tomorrow. No more frost! Who knows? Maybe I’ll get brave and actually put the birdbath out.

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
