The growing season is about over in my neck of the woods. There are still mums and asters and a few other things blooming, but I’ve begun the seasonal garden clean-up. The garden looked like this in mid-October.
It has been a beautiful autumn. There’s always lots of work to do when putting the garden to bed for the winter, but with all the visitors and pretty colors, the chore has been more enjoyable.
Can’t be many places beat the Fall colours in your part of the world. Amazing.
Thank you Jessica. Come visit us sometime and see the splendor
That color that you get there really is spectacular. Although though, (off topic), what species of spruce is that?! it looks great! I know they are common elsewhere, but we never get them like that.
Tony, the spruce was here when we moved in… looks like what we call blue spruce to me
It doesn’t look very blue, although blue spruce is probably the most commonly planted. It is the best one for here, since is it more tolerant of our aridity than some.
around here some of the blue spruce lose their blueness as they get older
