Dwindle

Tonight, life seems right, again.  Or at least blogging seems right.  I ditched the S mode deal on the new 2 in 1 and now have straight windows 10 pro.  I can download a printer driver and Chrome.  That makes the whole computer more functional. I actually read a techie column that said it was a much more functional computer and didn’t loose that much speed or security by ditching the S deal.

So, my daylilies dwindle.  Today, it seems like the reality of season end is hitting.  Soon, there may be 0 daylilies some days . . . then most days . . . then all days.

My mind turns to fall daylily work.  Nearly all effort now goes into building healthy plants for next season.  The little sprinkler system and trimming the plants back to encourage new growth.  I need to level and mulch the Southwest garden – well, at least level it.  As the earth settles from burying all those daylily pots 2 summers ago – well, there are some low patches and some plants that need their soil level increased.

After that, I will see what, if anything, needs to be divided.  Maybe some fertilizer.

Then, the leaves come and I bury my buddies until March.  Leaves are pretty, but winter is bland.  The roads are slick.  The days are short.  And, daylight savings time comes.  I can’t wait to see what I can do with my air plants this winter!

Speaking of dwindling . . . this will likely be my last week of nightly blogs.  Weekly, then prn until the buds open, again.
