Susan Ulmer sure knows how to appreciate every season of her Mabel Lake Garden.

"Every season has something so beautiful to offer us. For example, the bright annuals and grasses are just finishing up their last burst while others, such as the asters and monkshood, are just coming in to bloom. It's a lovely and quieter time of year."
