Today is the 15th of the month, meaning it is Garden Bloggers Bloom Day,where garden bloggers (and bloggers who like to flower garden) show what is blooming in their yards. And it's Monday, meaning it is time for Music Moves Me.
Who are the #MusicMovesMe bloggers? Every other week we have a theme, and on alternate weeks, we can blog about any music we wish. First, there is XmasDolly, who is returning, but not up to full speed yet Her co-conductors are: ♥Callie of JAmerican Spice♥, and ♥Stacy of Stacy Uncorked♥ Also, co-conducting is ♥Cathy from Curious as a Cathy♥ (who is filling in for Xmas Dolly until Xmas Dolly is totally back up to speed). And finally, there's me.
First things first....gardening. If you want to head straight for the music, you'll find it at the end. (And you are welcome to link up - there's just one rule - there needs to be music on your blog post for us to listen to!)
It is October. And, in my zone 5b upstate New York garden, we were under a frost advisory yesterday morning.
We didn't get a frost - my garden is spared a few more days, so I can show you what is blooming. But eventually (perhaps by Thursday) the end will - "sob" come.
So let us pay a fond farewell.
Last collage of the year - clockwise - dahlia, sunpatien, begonia, white marigold, variegated lantana, coleus with a heuchera mixed in, cleome.
A zinnia, opening up.
What could express my depression and sorrow that come at the end of the outdoor gardening season better than music that expresses sorrow at loss?
Empty Garden - this beautiful Elton John song pays tribute to John Lennon, who was murdered by a deranged "fan" in New York City on December 8, 1980.
November Rain - Guns N Roses - because nothing lasts forever, including love and the gardening season.
