Cleaning up garden for winter..
Here we go again, It was such a beautiful day I hated to do it. But waiting til it gets real cold on these old bones,not good, hubs and I got to it yesterday, 1 Nov! It is quite warm here actually for this time of the year. Cutting off the hosta leaves didn't hurt so much, but the Dusty Miller and Snap dragons...yikes! OUCH! They were still blooming! I left that red flowered thing because I just couldnt bear to get rid of them too.I poured some mulch on top of the hostas, I hope that was ok???? Have never done this before, but we had it.I was going to replant some of them but KMS Woodworks sent me to a site that said wait ..so I will. I took some of the Dusty Miller clippings and put it on the porch, hubs didnt realize it was going in my flower vase in the kitchen, I turned around and it was gone too. What was he thinking, 2 barrels of garden greenery ok, but a few sprigs of DM on the PORCH...huh? Oh well. Hope everyone gets their yard work done for the winter before it gets too cold..have fun! OOHH I had to take my face family out too ..they were starting to get weathered and I put them in a safe place for the winter! and I had to cut chicken hands-hands off too!
