Things outdoors are almost all tidied up here. Amazing! If there were to be another clear warmish day, I’m sure I could find a few more jobs to complete, but basically everything I was worrying about is DONE!
The rain barrels both split in August and we really need new ones. That is a job that can wait though. A few outdoor paint jobs can wait for Spring as well. There are a few more bulbs to plant, but not a big deal that…
The gutters are all cleaned out, most of the leaves are mowed and ground up. Roses are caged and mounded, but a few more shrubs need to be done too. Just a few things need to be burlapped. The central path of the vegetable garden has been spruced up.
Old dying lilacs were removed (all too easily!) and the clematis which grew on them now need supports. I’ll figure that out in spring!
There are lots of beautiful things to see before the snow falls…like the milkweed.
And the reflections in the water have been fun too:
It’s good to have rain before winter descends.
