The year seems to be just zooming by and fall has been making himself known. Many plants seem to be dying back sooner this year and we are getting them cut back early. Every year I think about planting some fall blooming bulbs like Crocus, Cyclamen or Colchicum, but I never remember to get them. This is something that should go on a list somewhere.
Unless your gardens were laid out by the garden club or a landscape designer, you probably have a hodgepodge collection of plants like we have. Although we have some ornamental grasses, nice flowering shrubs and trees, I am primarily a cut flower person, so that constitutes the majority of our gardens.
