Fall, an amazing time of year! It is back to school for the students and teachers (including me!), the days become shorter and there is less time in my schedule for gardening. The garden carries on without me though, receiving minimal attention on the weekends. Many flowers put on their last burst of bloom right before the end of the growing season and going dormant. Seed heads and muted colors begin to replace the color drama of summer. See also Spring BloomsSummer Blooms or Winter Blooms.
