Your garden is looking impressively tidy Sherlock. It puts ours to shame. I see that the forest is starting to get some spaces to make some little shady hide aways as well!
What a tidy garden -- looks neat and you're ready for winter!
Ha-love the "shadow"wave in the photo of the side garden.And you know I have to comment on your cluster of pots on the patio--I so enjoy that picture. It reminds me of my grandmothers garden-it was all in pots and so spectacular. Lovely!!
What is the brown stuff in the back? Needles from a bald cypress or pine needles?
I use cedar mulch mostly for the paths and straw in the beds often. It has all become close to the same color with some golden locust leaves currently. Nice to not do any mowing back there.
I'm amazed by all the blooms in your pots on the patio! We were hit by a frost a few weeks ago, and anything that wasn't sheltered pretty much turned to mush after that. Your garden all looks so tidy and ready for winter!
We have had a mild fall and the patio helps protect those containers if doesn't get too cold. I'm hanging on to them as long as I can!
GoSS, looks like there is a hint of Fall in the pictures. Temperatures here are about 20 degrees above normal. It will be interesting to see what nature has in store for this Winter. I'm busy putting the garden to bed and cleaning up the garden beds. I harvested the last of the tomatoes, onions, and started harvesting the potatoes. I'm ready for changing the focus from outdoor gardening to indoor Winter projects.Have a great Fall day.
Your garden is beautiful and I love your bench. Kisses :)
Good Morning sweet friend. Oh, how wonderful and neat everything looks in your garden. We have had a very rainy fall. Our colorful autumn leaves did not last long. Hope you have a great day.
What a nice tour of your gardens. Your back patio looks like a good place to relax.
