Enjoying the garden

I had such fun today cleaning up some of the vegetable garden beds, preparing them for garlic and a late sowing of lettuce and Asian greens (I'm optimistic), or getting them ready for spring.

In the meantime, I enjoyed how lovely the fall borders look, and the wonderful fall light.

The female hummingbird that's been hanging around visited the Salvia spp., the butterfly bush, and the coral honeysuckle, while bumblebees and honeybees mobbed the Salvia leucantha (Mexican bush sage) and the late Aster spp.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
