'Autumn is all about letting go. Leaves flutter to the ground. Flowers launch seeda into the wind. Pumpkins loosen ties with mellowed vines. It's time for gardeners to let go, too. Frost reminds us that we're not in charge, after all. How do we let go? Laugh at our failures -- but don't repeat them. Be amused by perennials intent on taking over the world -- then mark them for dividing next spring. You get the idea. Observe. Learn. Let go.'
