October Garden


















We've been working quite a bit on all areas of the garden.  So far we've (he) trimmed a lot of the trees and bushes back.  Tons of weeding has taken place and lots and lots of pruning.  So much more still needs to be done but I will wait til January because I love using the branches and any available flowers throughout the holiday season.  So other than watering and a bit of feeding I think mission accomplished.  I say that knowing that when I next step foot out there a job will present itself.  So basically it's never done. 😂

  1. Your garden has such a lovely style and shape...great trees for shade and a grassy patch for seating.
    Our garden is a bit of a mess right now and we are thinking of redesigning some areas as they have become so overgrown...gardens are always a work in progress!

  2. Your garden is very charming and youu have some lovely Salvias...one of my favorite plant families. They do so well here in our hot, dry climate.

    Yes, work in a garden is continual, rather like dusting, but the effort is so worth it.

    2. Salvias are great! This year I've planted the variety "hot lips" I bought on a whim. What a rewarding buy this has been. I adore their two-toned flowers! Oh, and they smell lovely! https://www.gardenia.net/plant/Salvia-Hot-Lips

  4. My husband can't get the time he needs to work on our property...he works three outside jobs...so the landscaping service we've used a couple of times a year (4-man crew) between two houses for 12 years is coming Monday and I can't wait because we are suffocating with overgrowth on the hillside and rear yard; I can't even see what plants are what, since they're all growing into one another. It's like a cluttered house I want to strip bare and start all over again. But I did cut three rose blooms for a glass vase yesterday and I do enjoy watching the buds unfurl each day. Roses are so...perfect. Our weekly gardener, who's been cutting the grass here for my family at this house for about 15 years and who gives me a very generous senior discount (or else I wouldn't be able to afford it), likes to trim my roses in early-early December but my dad always waited til January. I begin to bargain with my gardener (it's the same between us every year), "No, wait; wait. Just one more week; one more week!" (Since I'm loathe to lose even one of those flowers!)

    1. i hear you on the work. larry does the heavy lifting around here. we have been talking about calling someone in to help with the huge branches and high trimming. my roses really only have one good bloom each year and that is in spring. as summer comes the surrounding trees leaf out and they don't get the sunlight they need. it's a big conundrum for me. x

  5. Isn't that the truth? "It's never done!" I wish, at my house, it was more done. Your garden is looking great.
