I worked so hard in the garden this morning, I think my brain has totally LEFT HOME .. over three hours digging up stubborn plants (root systems stretching to China and they were watching the Olympics too I'm sure). Most of the changes will not be noticeable till late Spring next year .. instant satisfaction is not an option to real gardeners .. we have to envision the future picture constantly.
The shade factor is engulfing the back garden and I have to keep up with it to save my favorite plants. I don't mind having a shade garden at all .. but the change over has come more quickly than I had accounted for.
So .. I have to amuse myself for now with the promise of fun coming, with my favorite month, October .. Canadian Thanksgiving ... Halloween and those awesome black and white horror classics .. I'm a BIG kid waiting in the shadows ? ^..^
PS .. Did I mention I love nostalgic Halloween art .. post cards .. decorations ? anything ?
I forgot to mention .. I'm a little sad ... Curly Joe my Black Swallowtail Butterfly caterpillar left home .. hubby clued me in when he said .. "that little guy is gone !.." I am so disappointed .. I can't think of why he left .. my feelings are crushed ... I guess i shouldn't take it personally ? He just had to move on ...
