I took this shot of the garden just a couple of days ago. It was one of those perfect Texas fall days. The garden was alive with butterflies and bees and the flowers were at their brightest due to the cooler evenings followed by balmy days. Then, overnight a frost and suddenly winter was in the air. Flowers began to fade. Tomorrow I will begin the big tidy up and seed collection and bring inside the remaining tender plants, even though we are promised summer-like temperatures this week!
