It is a very strange fall. On wed, I had raspberries straight from the bush. They were good too. The blue bearded iris is trying to bloom again. SJ and I cut all the other irises back for iris borer control, but let this one keep its leaves so that it doesn't use all its energy on the flower. I felt strange cutting so many strong leaves but, it's Thanksgiving, and we've already had at least one hard frost.

Today, the wind actually ripped my butterfly bush out of the ground. It's lying in the driveway. This is a 7-8 ft tall bush which has been in that spot a few years. If the wind is down tomorrow, I'll try to put it back in the ground, stake it down, and cut it back a lot. I didn't want to try today, as it seemed the wind would just tear it out again. No idea if it will handle this okay, or if it's pretty much dead now. Luckily, these bushes grow fast and are easy to find, so it's not a huge loss if it doesn't make it.
