  1. Much as I hate the heat that extends summer well beyond its welcome here, Beth, I imagine I'd also be dismayed to feel my garden season coming to an end as cold temperatures settle in. I hope you have time to enjoy the best that fall has to offer in your part of the country.

    1. It is rather shocking, every year, Kris. It's easier when the transition is more gradual. Last year was really rough, when we went from hot summer to cold winter almost overnight at the end of October. This year, we're forecast to have a mild, but not hot October, which is nice.

    1. Thank you, Lisa. The colors are so beautiful right now--both the native plants and the annuals and the changing foliage. :)

  4. Your season is relatively brief (compared to some further south) but so beautiful! I hope your fall is full of color and interest!

    1. It is. Too short. It looks like we're going to have a mild October, but not too hot, which is nice. :)

    1. Yes, as far as I'm concerned, so far so good this autumn. A little cool early, but at least we're not going directly from summer to winter like we did last year at the end of October. Having some cool weather before the cold really helps. :)

  7. I confess I was wearing my hot pink long johns under my gardening clothes yesterday. There are voles messing with the Siberian iris and I'm all over that! I like putting the garden to bed for the winter. Without the winter I can't have the thrills of spring! ;}

    1. Haha, hot pink! I almost added the extra layer when we had that cold snap, but I resisted. I'm sure they'll be part of the wardrobe very soon. Yes, I don't mind a little winter. The transition from late summer to fall to first freeze is hard for me though.

  8. Glad to bring you good memories. Door County is a real treat for me - and sooooo close. Check out Toft Point the next time you are there - very natural and primitive -NICE

    1. You are fortunate to live so close to Door County. I think I'd feel comfortable living there, too, except the winters are even longer than they are here in Madison--much too long for me. I will try to remember to visit Toft Point next visit. :)

  9. Beautiful. Took a walk just now and noticed how most flowers are starting to fade. Still kind of dry.

    1. Things are fading now here, too, 10 days after this post. Even though we've had plenty of rain and we haven't had frost yet, the hostas are collapsing and the foliage on the annuals is starting to fade and crumble. Time to let go of the growing season. I'm glad it's happening more gradually this year, though. Last year, it was tough to go from mild weather to winter overnight at Halloween time.

  10. Though you will have some beautiful photos to keep you going during the winter, and spring will come again. Now it is almost time to rest and plan.

    1. Thank you. :) Resting and planning are good, too. I keep trying to tell myself that.

  11. I can see the water level dropping in our pond - time to change to summer mode and top up with available cleanish (rinsing) water. But it is a chilly October here.

    1. Summer--yay, for you! Although your climate is much more mild year-round than mine. I really can't complain until the really cold stuff sets in here, from January through February. That's when I really, really LOVE visiting your blog!
