It was a nice surprise to see this bunch of roses on a sunny but cold and windy day.
FYI, the Plainfield Garden Club is planning a "Closing of the Garden" at 10 a.m. on Nov. 5. The club takes care of the city's renowned Shakespeare Garden in Cedar Brook Park, with help for heavy chores from the Union County Parks Department. Wonder what last-minute blooms they may find.
As gardeners know, the time comes when there is nothing to do but clean up the tools and wait for those flower and vegetable catalogs in the New Year. (Seed savers like yours truly have been busy getting a jump on spring.)
And then the growing cycle starts all over again.
