Fall is the season when most gardeners think of tidying up and ending the growing year. While those are good things to do, this is also the perfect time to transplant perennials, shrubs, and trees.

Ah the joys of fall weather! My initial reaction on making it through a hot summer to a cooler and softer fall is profound relief. As a child, summer held vacations, frequent visits to the public library, and a break from school routine. Now it brings sunscreen, overheated cars, and an almost pathological need for a cool drink to be close at hand.
This week we experienced the opening salvo of fall in the form of a cold front dipping down from Canada. In the space of about 12 hours, the temperatures at my Fort Worth home went from near 100 degrees to 56 degrees after sundown. That, my friends, is a radical change.
