(part 4 of a 4 part series)
Part one: Winter
Planting the cool weather crops, carrots, turnips, collards and such still required us watering to get anything to grow. The temps broke early this year though…
As it cooled, and the miserly rains made the occasional appearance, the trees began their autumnal show. This autumn was as nice a show as I can remember in this area.
As Autumn progressed, it became unnecessary to water, and as it turned into winter, it became possible to dig new beds in untilled soil. It took until December before any new digging was worth attempting…
Be sure to click the pictures, they enlarge, and the plants are named.
If your favourite autumn flowers were omitted, my apologies. I had a lot of great pics, but was limited to picking 20.
Feel free to mention the ones I missed, and I’ll set up an album that includes them.
