Nights are getting longer again, and the weather is slowly cooling. At my garden space, the nights have been cold enough to convince the trees to change.

This in turn has prompted me to do some changing myself. I’ve uprooted the dying summer flowers, and stored the pond lilies in case the pond ices up. I think the frog has already found a warmer spot too, but I’m not sure where.

Since it’s cooler, I can do a little more indoor gardening. A friend gave me a nice bonsai for the office space I have here. It’s very beautiful, and suits the room well. The fall afternoon light makes the needles glint too!

And it’s dark and quiet again, so soon.
