Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful,’ and sitting in the shade.

Garden quote by Rudyard Kipling

Garden Quotes Autumn
Welcome Autumn. Wonderful rendering of an Autumn garden by Pierre Brissaud

I find early Autumn a wonderful time to spend as much time in the garden as possible now the burning days of Summer are behind us. There are so many possibilities -all the leafy greens can be seeded now, lots of cutting and division can be begun and now is a good time while still fresh in our minds to reflect on how our gardens grew this past Spring and Summer. I have earmarked a number of plants that need to be moved (or given away) to a better place. Of course there are some hot days still and unlike Rudyard (who I expect had an army of gardeners) I do recommend taking the time to sit in the shade, because sometimes thinking about the garden is almost as good as doing in the garden!
