Last night’s weather forecast included a frost alert. I turned on the furnace, poured myself a drink, and then took a walk outside to cut all the flowers that remained. The result was a riot of colors on my countertop.
Vases were readied and this week the dining room table will feature a rather garish display as we say a final goodbye to the summer of 2014.
Naturally, I'm already thinking about what I will plant next spring.
