Fall in the Chesapeake Bay region is absolutely lovely. The dogs stick their noses in the air and prance with an abandon like no other time of the year. Pine cones, sticks, and crazy squirrels keep them busy. They help me put the gardens ‘to bed’ and enjoy digging some new places for me to plant next year. It is sad to see the annuals die off but I am always glad to see a volunteer pull through the winter and surprise me the next season. For example those incredible Elephant Ears. I am not sure how that one got there since I do not remember planting them in that spot, but we do always have some in a pot on the deck. Maybe we threw a root over in the pile and it took hold. V just bought some black ones that we will winter over in the house and then see if they can WOW us next season like this astounding offering.
