Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

October 21st

The vibrant colors of summer have almost faded away. The hostas have turned yellow and almost all the annuals have finished flowering.

The daylily is still throwing up a few flowers as are the primroses, and the ferns are starting to dry up and wither ready for sleeping through the winter.

The deep greens of summer have faded and most all the plants are looking rather weary.

My favorite pot by the front door is still looking good but the first frost will take care of that.
