This has been a beautiful week here in the hills with the arrival of Indian Summer.
A lot of leaf raking and mulching has also been going on. About all the leaves have fallen here with the exception of the Oak tree leaves which hang on longer and will blow around all winter with the changing of the winds. But most will end up on my front porch at sometime or another during the winter. LOL!
A few anemones are still blooming in the garden but everything else with the exception of a few roses yet are all spent now and have been cut back.
Fancy Dress is a little droopy now with its many petals.
The Calinte Fire Ivy geraniums have been removed from the window boxes and repotted to be taken indoors for the winter as soon as freezing weather appears. Which may be sooner than I would like according to the weather reports of snow in some of the states.
This week with the warm weather was the time to get all the containers carried down into the basement for storage.
The tomato and pepper plants were pulled from their containers and a final cleanup of the flower beds was finished.
After cleaning up all of the beds it was sort of sad to look at them and see them so bare. No decorations or statues and most of all no more full beds of colorful flowers to look upon for another season.
Even the beautiful fall leaves are now all gone and all that remains are the browns of oak leaves and a stark and bear looking woods.
Sorry folks but I am just not a winter person and I dread to see its coming every year.
Tonight is Trick or Treat here in the hills so everyone look out for those little spooks and goblins running around.
Happy Halloween Everyone and…
