Gathering...making preparations




 
I am in the midst of gathering and making preparations for the coming season.  








It is difficult to tell summer goodbye but autumn brings a special joy.  
  
In the garden there is much to finish up and put away.   This afternoon I took the time to cut Sweet Annie and some Goldenrod.   I hung them in the shed to dry.
 
They should be ready for wreathes and arrangements in about two weeks.  
There are still zucchini and green peppers to gather... cabbage and beets to put away.
 
   
 
Bright nasturtiums are blooming in autumn's  colors.
 
 


I continue to keep my hummingbird feeders filled for all those sweet hummers that are making their way south for the winter.  They will be missed.
 
As always I am so glad you stopped by for a visit.
May God bless you.
