The window boxes are cleared of annuals, the geraniums and ferns being overwintered in the parent’s solarium.
The leaves are down off of all the trees.
They’re all nicely raked into the flower beds as a means to regulate soil temperature throughout the winter (and as a squirrel digging deterrent).
Since there are only so many garden beds and only so much room in the compost bins, the rest get raked to the curb for city pickup to make more mulch.
The birdfeeders are getting lots of use.
Last Wednesday, on the day before T Day, we had our first light dusting of snow. It lasted all of 2 hours before melting away.
So I’m ready for you Winter, bring it on!
Well, almost ready….
