Fall is here? Almost, so let’s enjoy the outdoors

We have had a unique weather year with a mild winter, wet spring, dry summer and a delayed fall.  While we can enjoy the warmer weather in a variety of ways, including visiting your Metro Parks like Schoepfle Garden, we also need to take care of our landscape and flowers no matter what the season brings.  Here at Schoepfle we have not experienced a frost to end the growing season so we still have roses, begonias, canna and dahlias still in bloom along with our fall favorites like sedum, hardy cyclamen and witch hazel.  Some beds have been cleared in preparation to plant tulips but we will wait until the ground temperature gets a little lower to prevent them from getting an early start like one of our iris in the new rainbow iris bed which bloomed this week instead of waiting for spring since it has not yet received the signals to stop growing this year.  We will eventually fall into autumn and winter snows will be here sooner than we may like, but let’s take some time to enjoy the moment and check out the fall color in the parks along with some bonus bloom time from our garden favorites.
