Now, the days are getting shorter and the nights become slightly cooler. Autumn is on its way. It is time to prepare the garden for the cooler, more comfortable days ahead. Soon, the Monarch butterflies and the Hummingbirds are migrating south into Mexico, again. They need lots of feeding stations along their way. Our local critters, birds, and insects need a place to feed, rest and hideout as well. Here are some photos of the newest blooms, and some are collections I’ve got over the last few years.
