Mid-November

We have had a wild couple of weather weeks. First the snow, then warm days in the 70’s and now reality has returned. Twenty-five degrees this morning. I took advantage of the warm days and got most of the garden clean-up done. Dahlias are now dug, dried and put away. The elephant ears and brugmansia are hibernating in the basement.

A leucistic finch – very cool

We always mow the meadow once a year

Five deer strolled by the other day

We had some tree work done

So everything is resting. No more blooms until spring but as usual there will still be beauty during the winter months.

  1. Yes, summer is done for us, too, although we haven’t had snow yet where I live in the Southern Tier of New York (near the Pennsylvania border). I still have a stray flower or two, plus some that have survived in hanging baskets. Your leucistic finch was very pretty indeed.
