Fall is rolling in with fits and starts, and many of us are feeling a draw to turn inward. Like yarrow ready for deadheading, I’m feeling ready for rejuvenation, and many of you probably are too. With visions of garden grown butternut pies and freshly harvested tulsi tea, we all want a little more comfort and a little less to do.

One of the cornerstones of a well-planned garden is choosing plants for year-round blooms and seeds. Not only do new buds popping at unexpected times of year make each season more exciting for us at garden lovers, but they also provide critical habitat for wildlife at a time of year that can be food scarce for wild creatures.

While it’s already known as “the sweetest little fair in Sonoma County”, this year’sGravenstein Apple Fair becomes even sweeter, in the form of bees and honey. This year’s theme is “In Praise of Pollinators”, drawing attention to the critters, especially bees, who keep our food systems alive.

Most people associate Black-headed Grosbeaks with spring, when their beautiful song awakens us to freshness of new things to come. But I often think about them in August. This is when they try to slip out of our northern lands and drop down to Mexico without being noticed. I always try to catch glimpses of them quietly lurking in the streamside willow forests before they leave. I just don’t want them to leave “without saying good-bye.”
