Can you believe that in a little over a month, the majority of civilization will be "falling behind"...or at least our time-keeping devices will be?! Myself? No, no...not me. I will be springing ahead! The weeds will be removed, the hosta and perennials divided, the bulbs planted and I will be well on my way to sewing (sowing?) my way into winter projects and spring planning. I may be a bit overly optimistic, but I am going to remain confident that the majority of my "springing ahead" will be complete before those first little snowflakes accumulate on the gardens.
While I do *adore* fall, I love, love, *love* spring!! For me, fall is what brings spring. I get to savor the beautiful fruits of my fall labor in perennial placement and flowering bulbs. It's exciting!!...an ever-changing palette that is my own. I cannot draw, I cannot sing, but I can put flowers together pretty well...in the landscape and in arrangements. Flowers allow me to be creative and as silly as it may sound, express myself. This is why I give "names" to the flower arrangements that I design...I am able to look at nearly every one of them and feel something. Plants & flowers really have an amazing little way of bringing out emotion in all of us...
Fall is upon us, but no worries...no "falling behind". We still have over a month of fun left at the Freight House Farmer's Market, Apple Fest in LeClaire on Oct. 10th and then we will be "springing ahead" into 2011 for a fresh, new season of fun, beautiful "emotions".
