Unofficially Autumn again

Besides continuing to work on restoring window sashes, we began the preparations for winter. Bringing in the plants and cleaning off the side porch are usually the first of these seasonal machinations.

It’s been a hard year for some of the moisture loving plants but a very good year for the ones that like hot, dryish weather. The fiscus tree, wandering jews, and the aloe all did very well outside. The bird of paradise plants…not so well.

Here’s a picture of about half of them, back in the living room, beginning the long wait for spring.
