Getting the Beds Ready for Fall Flowers

It's that time of the year already!  We had a cold spell that came in over the weekend, which basically turned it into the Autumn season.  So we are getting ahead start on our fall flowers/bulb preparation in our flower beds.  Temperatures dipped into the 30's for the first time this weekend so the flowers will be dying off anyways.  This just helps us plant our fall flowers (pansies, ornamental kale, heuchera, and others) sooner so they have a chance to set their roots.  We will follow a week later planting bulbs in between the flower plants.  It will be difficult to find a time as the rainy season makes it a muddy mess to figure out, but we will trudge ahead.  Here is a before and after shot of the work we did while the temple was closed on Monday.
