NOTICE:
To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

Zack

Our first autumn 2011 frost predicted for tonight


It is time to let go of summer here in northeastern Illinois.  I won’t be covering the garden annuals or moving flowerpots into shelter.  Flowers in October just don’t bring me comfort; they look and feel artificial.  It is time to let them go nature’s way and for me to settle into dreams of another spring.  Once the frost burns away all life, I will clear the remains and prep the beds for next year.  It is time to let go.

Greetings from Texas,
We are having a cold wave, highs in the 80's. Compaired to the summer we've had, that's cold.
