    1. Yes. Autumn is here. The frozen plants are still in the vegetable garden but little by little, I'm cleaning up and storing away.

  2. I just love the updates on your yard. No matter what season, your back yard looks like a wonderful place to relax. I was surprised to see how quickly you cooled down this fall. The way your summer was going, I thought it was going to be a late freeze for you.
    Enjoy the season. You know what's next-LOL!

    1. We're getting up to 80 still some days. Freaky fronts come through like that change everything and then it goes back to "normal."

  4. I enjoyed the tour (as always). How quiet and serene.
    I'm wondering how much mulch it takes to cover your yard and how frequently you have to add it...Annually? And when do you do it? Do you have anything under it for weed prevention?

    1. We replenish it in the spring after everything has come up. I think we used two full short bed pickup loads this year from our city's free mulch pile. I only purchased a few bags for specific areas. I put down a lot of newspaper when we first mulched out the grass but don't do that anymore. Just more mulch on top. Sometimes, I use straw in places.

  5. Your garden is beginning it's long sleep. At least you get a break from gardening. We're moving into the best time for gardening down here.

    It's nice to see some of your plants grouped on your porch, at least you still have some lovelies to enjoy.

    Have a nice weekend and enjoy your fall weather.

  6. The forest is getting big. The backyard so nice and tidy. I thought at one time you had the veggie beds bordered by broken concrete?

    1. I have broken concrete pieces around three beds in the back garden which sometimes have veggies. The "official" veggie beds have the cinder blocks with pavers on top of the holes. A little of both I guess.

  7. I keep going out into the garden areas and work on the cleanup. The dead things sometimes take care of themselves but I need to bring a lot of things inside. Thanks for sharing your gardens.

  8. All looking far tidier than our garden at present I must say. I love the seating area.

  9. I see you have a few water butts. Do you call them water butts there too? Or is that just an English term? You garden looks well-loved :)Thanks for sharing!

    1. I'm guessing you're seeing the rain barrels? LOL. I love hearing the different terms used for items in different places. I can hold 225 gallons of rain water with the three barrels.
