We "cleaned out" a couple of the neighborhood gardens today - and by "cleaned out" I mean we pulled out all the annuals and planted the bulbs. Turns out, this leaves the garden pretty clean. I left the Dahlias standing as it seems, in the city, we'll never have a frost this year and we may get another couple weeks production out of the Dahlias; in which case, I'll post another image like this one in a couple weeks. Dahlias for Thanksgiving anyone?
As we pulled everything out today, I cut and salvaged what I could. I brought some flowers around to friends, staged some up at the café and set some up in the house. Nothing overly complicated here, but we are looking at an idea that the garden should be put together as much to grow things for the home - food and flowers - as to be a place to be in, to look at, and to practice with.
