There just isn’t a lot to say about the garden right now. I need to cut back some more as the lilies suck the chlorophyll back into the bulbs. Soon, I’ll start raking leaves.

This weekend, we have to take in some of the plants to overwinter. I’m not taking in all the furniture yet. Sometimes, it’s still nice enough to sit out for a few minutes.

We have to figure out where to put the enormous peace lily and the maidenhair fern. We thought the fern died in spring, but it’s come back and is gorgeous. Last winter, it wasn’t in a sunny enough spot. We will fix it this year.

We’re still in drought. I’m still planning gardens for various stories (and still not happy with any of the software). I’m fantasizing about next spring’s garden, but it is more likely to be spring 2022, since spring of 2021 has so much transition in it.

How’s your garden doing?
