Garden Blogger's Muse Day: October 1
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~Albert Camus
I very much like Camus's quote, but for this October 1 Garden Blogger's Muse Day, we still have a celebration of flowers going on. One of my new fascinating delights is the toad lily, or Tricyrtis, which has settled in nicely and is causing me great joy when I see it.
There was a bit of frost in areas around us last night, but so far, the annuals and perennials here are doing just fine, unscathed by the cool touch of Jack Frost's paintbox. Hints of colour are coming in the foliage, so that second spring is not far away...and of course each day will bring us that much closer to the 'real' spring once again.
