Preparations for winter started


   Warm and rainy September is over and October is cooling the garden. No frost so far and dahlias are still vividly blooming. Fuchsias were flowering amazingly during past few weeks. They were happy for cooler temperatures and flowers were opening huge, especially Bella Rosella. On the title photo taken today morning the flowers are as large as a big apple.

   Anyway it's time to prepare fuchsias to winter storage and I'm glad that I did it today. All leaves and green stem parts were pruned. Now they are ready to go to the basement and wait there until next spring.
