constant exercise of the imagination

The end of summer is fast approaching; goldenrod has been blooming by the drive for a month already, and I spotted ironweed at the edge of the woods a few days ago. 

It's almost time to plant spring-flowering bulbs, and I'm anxious to get started gardening here on Moss Hill, but (for once) I want to approach garden-making with a plan, and likely the advice of a landscape designer. Since I have neither at this time, I'll settle for pretty pictures.

Half the interest of a garden is the constant exercise of the imagination.
