Summer is entering a subtle time!
We are entering an interesting time in our gardens, here in our zone 4 [ish] area.
As we see the evenings darken sooner, and the subtle hues of plants peak as they reach their Fall destination, it announces another change about to happen.
I speak for a few who might be tiring of the heat advisory days, and look forward to an easier outside working temperature, when I think we might be on that cusp!
When the change happens, it is a marker, and in one way a nice countdown.
It gives us a lovely time to enjoy the more subtle gardens, muted colors, late bloomers, seed heads of the summer plants, ornamental grasses and fall fruits, to name a few.
But it is also a great start of the late growing season. Time to move or divide some plants. Save seed, or condition plants that might have been forgotten. All this while there is great weather conditions for human workers!.
And great soil temp's for root growth until winter starts.
It really is a great season, so different from the Spring, with the emergent bright growth colors, but I think, as or more beautiful, with it's subtle colors or toned-down earthy hues!
Enjoy this Fall season, and don't miss a minute, if it's for the work you can do, or just to be in your garden and soak up all it offers!
