when i signed on to water the reitz home garden (for master gardeners) 10/21 through 11/2, i didn’t expect to be Still watering…  it was back in late june and in the heat of those days, i figured it would be Winter by now…   but instead it’s this glorious indian summer….   if you’ve never visited the home, now is a good time to go.  the urns are always beautiful (the east one is a little burned up, but you can’t tell unless you look closely):

but this picture of the shade garden showcases the beauty of the sunset washing over the plants and inspired me…again:

have a wonderful day, y’all…
