The Last Days of October at Rosetta McClain Gardens

A Golden falling at Rosetta Gardens

The month of October at Rosetta McClain is a time to put everything to rest for the winter months ahead.  The garden’s staff empty flower beds, pots and other containers of summer plants while nature does its part by changing the colours of leaves on trees to an assorted shade of reds and yellows. Some trees shed their leaves fast, covering the ground with a carpet of golden yellow while others hang on a bit longer until the cold days arrive. It’s still pleasant to walk through the garden and see all these changes and be grateful for the lingering memory of the summer and autumn of 2021.

Until next spring…

    I wonder if gardeners there do what John does to clear leaves from the lawn: cut the grass with a bagging mower, then dump the mixture on the compost pile.

    We’re far enough south that the final mowing of the year won’t be until late November, after nearly all the leaves have fallen.

    The magic of autumn, Emanuel, and the memories of summer! I’m blessed to have been at the Rosetta Gardens and by the lakeshore so close by!
