Yours is as bare as mine is. Thankfully you have your conifers and shrubs for Winter interest and structure. Cher Sunray Gardens
Do you have a lot of birds in the forest area?
A lot of birds like the forest especially robins.
It is amazing how bare your gardens get. It is still a jungle down here, although things are wilting and croaking because of lack of rain.Have a wonderful Christmas.FlowerLady
Looks like the garden is all ready for a cold winter.... Won't be too many months though when things will all come back to life and there will be GREEN all over the yard!!!!!! Oh the glory of seasons.... NOW THOUGH: the garden RESTS.Hugs,Betsy
But there is so much life still there!
Everything looks so neat and tidy--you must have been very busy this fall doing garden clean-up. I noticed the brown lawn, too, and then read your last post; wish I could send some of our rain your way! My Christmas decorations are getting soggy:)
We'd take any rain we could get.Don't worry about the brown lawn though. We have Bermuda grass. It goes dormant every winter and turns brown no matter how wet the year has been. It does the same thing in the summer when it gets too dry. It goes to sleep. It was brown this summer and the last nice rain we got greened it back up just long enough to mow before the first frost put it back to sleep. Durable grass and very soft on your toes!
