In the Garden: Get your garden work done and then enjoy the rest of fall

As our gardens hunker down for the winter, so do we. Gorgeous fall colors of the appropriately named burning bush, clusters of red berries on dogwoods, the subtle, hazy plumes of smoke trees — those all add visual pleasure this time of year.

These brilliant fall afternoons are most appreciated because we know they’re numbered — we’re heading into colder, overcast days. On the other hand, I appreciate the reprieve of less outside work, and time redirected to other pursuits. A change of seasons rejuvenates my enthusiasm for gardening next year.
