Things have slowed down rapidly this Thanksgiving week. We've been working hard to get all the fall planting done and are finally feeling mostly finished. The list was long of what went in the ground over the past month. We've been focusing on adding a lot of perennials to our gardens which will produce flowers for many years, without having to replant. We have also planted thousands of bulbs and corms; tulips, ranunculus, and anemone among them. Dahlias are lifted and tucked into our root cellar. There are still a few more loose ends to tie, but it's all feeling a bit more doable now. Coming down from this whirlwind of a season, I am so grateful for this little bit of downtime!
