Frost warning fall 2010; goodbye flowers

.

It is the dark side of morning and I just came in from outside; I had to take one last look at the impatiens and other annuals. They have given me great pleasure throughout the spring, summer, and fall but likely will all be dead by sunrise; I am not going to cover them. It is time to let nature have its way so I can begin preparing the beds for next season. I did take one large pot of petunias and one flowerbox of marigolds into the garage in an attempt to salvage some color for the time between now and when the nightly freezes begin. Next year I will use more containers for planting annuals to thwart the sporadic frost events of spring and fall.

This afternoon while I was laboring on setting more bricks for the front yard garden-apron/walkway (I will remember this year as “the year of 1,000 bricks”) I saw a mouse scurry into the garage. I chased it around for a while but failed to extricate the rodent; I will be picking up some mouse sticky-pads and poison to remedy the situation.
