It seems that the seed pods I collected from this year’s morning glories were safe from last month’s frost and have safely gone to seed for next year.
Now to put them somewhere I won’t forget about them.
The lilacs are looking lovely this year.
They certainly have the attention of the butterflies, moths and bees in the neighbourhood. I take that as a good sign.
We have installed our tiny Christmas tree here at the condo.
It is a dwarf Alberta spruce in a pot which we will hopefully tend when the holidays are over and then plant in the spring.
In the meantime it just fits nicely in our little living room.
It appears I guessed correctly.
There will be raking in my immediate future.
Now that cooler weather is here and frost is imminent if not already at the schoolhouse, my summer photos will have to suffice for the winter.
I was dubious about this strawberry in a basket deal but it appears to be working. Here is our first actually red strawberry and the blossoms that are spouting out of the top of the planter are ready to rock anytime.
The daffodils are up and I am taking advantage! Here’s to a bountiful garden in 2013.
We have finally replaced the decrepit old picnic table that was more hazard than seating with a new one. Pat is going to stain it but whatever color shall we choose?
At least that is what my drought-riddled flower bed here is telling me. I know I didn’t go up to the schoolhouse as much as I had hoped this year so I guess that meant my gardens didn’t get the love and attention they needed. The dry summer took its toll and while they all soldiered on as best they could now I fear all is lost.
Well I guess I might as well plant the bulbs for the spring now.
