Alstroemeria seed pods
Japanese Anemone have spread like crazy this summer
The Sedum Autumn Joy is about to burst
At this point, I think the best approach is to wait another month and do a massive clean up of spent blooms and stalks. Fall is shaping up to be extremely busy. My parents are coming for an extended visit at the end of September which has prompted a room-swap in our house. My sewing room for D's bedroom. At first I was all excited to shovel out my lair, but now I'm not so sure. It's going to be a massive undertaking and I definitely see some de-stashing in my future!
But first, I've got a baby quilt commission that needs doing. To the cutting matt I go!
P.S. Anyone looking for a long-weekend read might enjoy The Best Laid Plans by Canadian author Terry Fallis. B and I just finished it; not only is it extremely well-written, we both found it highly entertaining and very funny. It won Canada Reads last year as well as the Stephen Leacock award for humour. In no other book will you find an insiders perspective on the Canadian House of Commons AND hovercraft. Trust me.
