Yes we do have some deciduous trees, but they do not get brilliant and they certainly don't dominate the landscape. So forget the fancy store bought fluff, I have real New England leaves on my mantel.
Understated maybe, but they make my heart sing!
The last of the roses are looking a little scruffy, but never the less I will cherish them.
Japanese AnemoneI finally tackled my garden this past week. Here are some new babies I planted that I acquired at Molvaks on a very quick drive by when we were in western WA for a wedding a month ago. I love how the purple cone flowers pick up the purple in the hibiscus. They are definatley planted near each other.
So here is the before and after of just one rose. Everybody looked like a wild hairy armpit. I had some major whacking to do. Now we can get in the front door anyways :D
So I am all tidied up outside and in. This week we were preparing for a frost. Nothing really hit, but I have soooooooooooo much produce to process now. You will have to wait and see what I am up to with all that hoopla next week.
