I am told by Weather Channel personnel that this Sunday will mark the end of this year’s growing season in Eastern Pennsylvania. The temperature is predicted to drop below 32 degrees and tender crops and flowers will return to the soil from which they sprang. Another season ends, a new one begins.
I have Friday plans to remove all Vinca, Impatiens, marigolds, tomatoes and peppers. I hope the broccoli, kale and chrysanthemums will weather a few frosty nights.
I’m not ready to let go. This series of photographs will help me through the long, cold winter days I know – are coming.
