How Morning Looks
The garden is at an in-between stage. Oddly enough, a few spring bulbs are showing themselves already. It's time to start cutting back the cannas and get ready for snapdragons and violas. October is the prime planting month here, as the ground is still warm enough for tender roots and the smaller plants benefit from the winter rains and establish themselves for a major burst of growing come spring.
We're loath to use any snail bait in the yard, so they're mostly hand picked and relocated to a nearby field. They gather on the cannas, so luckily, they're easily rounded up and moved en masse. This one seems to defy gravity as it makes its way along the edge of a canna leaf, almost upside down.
Yogurt and fruit - it tastes even better than it looks!
