Early morning frost....signs of cooler temps

It is nearing Thanksgiving and now we turn to the tasks of preparing the garden for its winter rest.  Often I remark at how lush the vegetation becomes in the warm months and now reward the plants with a well earned and in most cases necessary dormant season. The day-lilies will be top-dressed  and the twiggy shrubs wrapped so their branches won't break under the weight of the impending snow that will eventually fall.  Burlap surrounds will go up to stop the wind from damaging the evergreens and tepees of old shutters will protect others.
