Fading Garden Glory in Early November

Flowers in a November are a supreme treat for a native Midwesterner. It’s one of the many reasons I love gardening in Puget Sound.

Fall has been warm here, with the first signs of frost this week. Heavy rain and short days have reduced plants, and a few more cold night will end them for 2012. I took these pictures the day before elections in the West Seattle garden during a rain break.

The real garden work starts soon, as I’ll deconstruct beds chopping perennials in half and moving them. The ground rarely freezes completely, so I’m usually gardening into January.
