Preparing For Fall Flowers

Reflections, Day 10

Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.”
― Henry David Thoreau. Walden

I was in a quandary.

I had to find a place for these pansies that I have for my clients.

And since I knew that in a week or two the impatiens in the back flower bed will turn to frostbitten mush, I decided that it’s time to take them out. That would give me the room I needed.

I kept finding something else to do while I enjoyed the flowers for a little while longer. And then I just went over there and did it. Dekie and I moved the trays of plants into the vacant spot and we stood back and grinned.

In the gardening world, timing is everything
