The shorter days and chilly mornings seem to be of little concern for the fall blooming Anemones in the garden. My wife Linda is busy putting the garden “to bed” with her ritual fall clean up and preparation for next season. Yes, there is a lot of work to prepare the garden for fall and winter. Flowers, herbs and vegetables all require patience and tending to guarantee a healthy vital garden next spring.
There is a real art to it and I can understand why gardeners are such passionate people. A garden is a fascinating living creation and a creative accomplishment, a kind of living art with all of it's transforming colors and shapes. Linda’s garden has been the inspiration of many a painting and probably will be for many more. I may not know much about gardening, but I am learning something new. I however do know, you have to do the things you are passionate about.
“Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.”
