This time of year my garden seems to say "I've spent the summer in wild array and now I'm tired and in need of sleep"

Sated Garden





Phlox are slowly easing their

Way towards winter sleep

Daffodils and tulips have long

Gone to their hibernal rest


Morning glory’s droop and sigh

Clematis blossoms now anemones 

Roses of Sharon valiantly bloom

Impatiens show a lacklustre side


Mornings now are wet with dew 

Soon frost will paint its monochrome

 knell to summer a call to Fall

Approaching snows will cover all

Beautifully articulated! Am loving the litany of the flowers!

I miss having a garden and how when looking out the window, mine looked just as nice as any other in the neighbourhood...

when under 2ft of snow :)
