Welcome Fall! Cool weather at last. Here are 2 Monarchs sleeping through our scheduled Work Session at the garden this morning at 8:30 AM. Of course the 55 degree temperature may have had something to do with their torpor. We got roses trimmed and a lot of weeds pulled. Thank you Joan, Janet, Cathy C and Chuck for all your hard work as usual. We enjoyed some hot plum tea and cookies in addition to our exercise. How about others of you ? Come join us Nov 10th at 8:30 AM for our next work day and the planting of 4 flats of fall flowers. You can do no wrong and need no special gardening skills. Yes we have stand up work that does not require you to be bending or on your knees.

The Garden has lots of butterflies! Georgeine says the garden is looking very good but does need weeding and pruning. You will need clippers, hedge clippers, the roses will need some trimming. We will cut out the dead rose bushes. Hopefully we can complete our trimming until the December Work Day.
There is a 30% of rain in the forecast for tomorrow morning, if it is pouring rain, then we should move the work day to Monday, October, 31 8:30 a.m.
The old glorious knobby oak tree has died and has been cut down.
