Preparing for the fall mums

I am gathering up the tools and the will to remove the lovely summer plantings from their bed in front of my home.  This is always a bit emotional.  This action signals the end of summer and the arrival of cooler weather and the need to wear a sweater.  Luckily I like sweaters.  And I like mums, which are perennial fall favorites in gardens in the Northeast.  Need to clean off the trowel and hand rake and get out the plastic bags to hold the vine-y remains.  On Saturday we will remove the mandevillas, black adder and ivy and replant with nine big mums.  I’ll let you know how it goes…
