This Bloom Day caught me by surprise! It's a chilly, breezy autumn day in Minnesota, feeling normal after a year of unseasonal, atypical (but, hey, what's typical anymore?) weather.
A quick and cold tour of the garden finds dribs and drabs of color and hangers-on sputtering out a final attempt at carrying on the species.
Time to put our kayaks away. Long shadows and golden light. The Garden Buzz

Always a melancholy mood in the garden this time of year.
Thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for the one and only original Garden Bloggers Bloom Day!
