It's time to start cutting back the garden. I try to wait for the first frost because the colours can be glorious, but its a big garden and I don't always have time to wait. Thought we might get a frost Sunday night as it was 2 C [37 F]  and a full moon. Usually I'm pretty good about deadheading but this year I've let some things go . Like the day lilies, and am I ever glad. Here are the seed pods, looking like rib cages. The structure of the pod is a marvel and as they dry, the skin disintegrates so that the seed is released.
