Time spent in the garden was glorious, if not enough....but I made the most of the time I did have there. Daylilies had a banner year....as did lavender, echinacea, valerian, liatris, and most everything else!
And oh, my....the tomatoes and basil! So beautiful, and tasty....and prolific!
That said, the light has changed; the days are shorter and the sun slants down at a different angle, and my plants and gardens are slowing down, settling in for their off-season dormancy. (I can't bring myself to use the "w" word yet....) At the studio, my work is evolving and I'm excited to show visitors and friends some of the new designs and ideas.....Open studio weekend is coming up Columbus Day weekend and it's always fun to welcome guests in to see what's happening.
