Wishing you the best of all seasons!

The Camellias are blooming.

So much to see and enjoy.

 

 

Fall garden clean-up is a "mixed idea".  Raking up the leaves to use in the planting beds as they will decompose and create a rich loamy soil.  The leaves will also give all the good insects a place to overwinter.    Seed pods are left standing for the birds to pick on during the winter months.

 

The grasses and seed pods also create a lovely look when the snow falls; lots of snow...which we are hoping we receive this winter!   The trees appreciate moist soil during the winter months.  Too dry a soil will stress the trees.

 

The wild bird population continue to delight us around the feeders.   Our favorites include, downy woodpeckers, bluejays, titmouse, nuthatches, goldfinches, wrens, and chickadees and more.  It is just about that time when the Juncos and other birds come down from the mountains to feast at the bird feeders.

 

We had a wonderful season of Monarchs, Fritillaries, Swallowtails and others.  Many were here all summer, and many stopped by on their way south.

 

We have received over 200 visitors to our private garden this year and look forward to welcoming all the fall, and perhaps winter garden lovers.

Her blushing farewell, at my feet were strown."
