Bringing in the begonias. I told my mother I liked her arrangement she laughed and told me that wasn't her intention. She was just bringing in some cuttings to winter over on her porch. I still maintain it's an awesome arrangement.
Fall crocus are such a sweet addition to a autumn garden. They send out amazing green leaves in the spring so they can store energy for a fall bloom. Because they don't leaf out in the fall they are also called naked ladies.
Admiring the last of the Anemone blooms before cutting them back at the #wanderhomestead I’ve been asked when the right time to “put the garden to bed” is and my answer is to wait as long as possible. Enjoy those seed heads and the changing color on plant foliage. There is so much to love about a garden this time of year and instead of feeling you have to spend hours getting everything cut back at once take it slow and do one thing at a time. . . . . .
Did you know there are actually 4 "seasons" for spring bulbs? Late winter (February-early March), Early Spring (March-early April), Mid spring (April-early May), Late Spring (May-early June). When planning what to plant it is important to be sure you plant bulbs in most or all of the seasons to guarantee a spectacular show come spring. This is a sample of what I planted for a client today - you can catch me in action on my insta story. Have any questions about spring bulbs? Leave them in my comments I'd love to help! . . . . .
