An incredibly tough and busy week….with a time change at the end! But this is the part that helps me survive it all!
1.The garden is mostly cleaned up, but a few flowers remain that I just can’t cut back yet!
Here are some late blooming asters and the white fall Anemones.
2. A kind friend came by last Saturday and spent a long time helping me clean up leaves and organize the compost bins.
3. Many pots will live outdoors under the eaves where they remain somewhat protected from the elements. Spring bulbs are planted in a few of these.
4. The berries on the Disporum cantonense ‘Night Heron’ are hard to capture in photos. (for me!) The foliage still looks great these days, so I think I’ll cut it back in early spring. The dark new foliage is wonderful to see.
5. It is quite wet these days, but even so, some colour remains.
Yes, green is a colour too!
6. More stuff: If there are any more dry days, there’s plenty of mulch left to spread around.
We have had another dead tree cut down too.
and the edging is mostly completed.
PS: The Ginkgo tree…..where will it be come Saturday? Here’s how it looked on Wednesday. In Nigeria they say “Who knows tomorrow?” In just one day, all the leaves usually fall at once.
