October is my favourite month. We are usually blessed with gorgeous big skies, spectacular red, orange and gold leaves, and cooler weather. The only part of October I don’t enjoy is having to empty my summer plant pots.
Before beginning the task, I take one last look at the plants who have bloomed their little hearts out for me all summer.
I take the plants from their pots as gently as I can, and sometimes I have honest-to-goodness tears in my eyes as I lay them in the wheelbarrow.
Then, off to the forest they go to become compost, along with the fallen leaves. 🍂
The circle of life.

I’m with you Phyllis! It’s especially difficult when we have a mild fall like this year, and the beautiful full plants we have nurtured all season look fabulous!
So very true, Susan. When I cut down the gardens and clean out my pots, I remind myself of freezing when I do it in November, and that helps with the motivation.
