“Listen! The wind is rising and the air is wild with leaves, we have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!”–Wolfe

I don’t know about where you live, but here in Ohio, the trees are turning colors and pumpkins and mums are appearing on porches and in flower beds. We recently had to turn on the heat, and this past Sunday morning we had frost on the grass. All you gardeners know what that means—the end of the growing season. And with the end of the garden season this year comes the end of this year’s A Writer’s Garden Series.

I hope everyone has enjoyed seeing the various gardens of my writer acquaintances, who have become more like friends and less like strangers over the past few months as we shared our gardens. That’s a phenomenon I often see among gardeners. Our common interest bonds us, no matter where we live, or what we grow, or in the case of writers—what we write.

I’d like to thank everyone who so graciously shared garden tips, pictures, and commented on the gardening posts. Your contribution made this blog series a wonderful success.

I’m hoping to bring the series back next spring, and I may have a few gardening posts over the winter as well (especially if some gardeners with extended growing seasons continue to contribute). So please come back and visit often and enjoy what the next seasons have to offer.

In the meantime, I hope you’ll come back for the guest author blog series, “Home for the Holidays with Author …”  starting in the Thursday slot next week.
