Beautiful fall this year and no snow so far. The serviceberry is just now
dropping it's leaves and the 5 bald cypress by the pond are rusty orange and
already have a "skirt" of the same color on the ground around them. My pond is
struggling to keep it's bottom covered as we have not had adequate rain this
fall. Lost several trees because of last year's drought and now i fear for the
evergreens. Cut flowers did fairly well this year and my daughter decided she
would sell bouquets and plants potted in " interesting" containers at the
local Sat. farm market. One of her creations was to plant the top of dolls
heads (removed from the bodies) with trailing plants, mostly succulents.
Public reaction was mixed. Either they would turn away saying "too creepy" or
they loved them! Tomato and zucchini harvest was huge and I was glad for the
first frost. Am having some health issues and am frustrated at not being
outside more. All the garden columnists are listing fall cleanup chores.
Here's hoping I won't have too much of a mess in the spring if I don't get
them done. kathy    p.s. so good to hear from Chris and Judy. I miss this

We had the first snow today when I had an appointment 2 hours away. Made it
there and back safely. Still have walnuts and leaves all over the lawn. Had
our biggest walnut removed a few weeks ago and have been getting all that
cleaned up. The tree removers were able to spare a seedling dogwood that
grows at it's base. I hope it can be moved to another bed. This really
opens up the southern side of the house. Nice on these gray days but I will
miss the shade next summer. We planted a linden a few years ago but it will
be several more before it gives us significant shade on the house. The
saffron crocus are blooming and I want to pick some threads before they
freeze. Beautiful red berries on the dogwoods. I'll enjoy them while I can.
Soon the starlings will scoop in and strip the trees bare.
I have a question for you. The city planted some blooming trees on the east
side of the new library. They've been blooming since late August and are
producing more buds every time I see them. At first I thought they were
dogwoods. Now they look more like magnolias with 4 petals per flower. Any
idea what they might be?  I'll try to get a picture tomorrow.
