You may have noticed my more regular posting schedule lately, because it’s November and I am once again participating in NaBloPoMo. That means a post per day. And it’s hard, VERY hard, for me to find the time.
So today I’m posting a few pictures, and writing a little about my garden.
Today is one of those impossibly beautiful autumn days, sunny and crisp, and because we haven’t yet had a killing frost, my garden is still in bloom!
The (over)abundance of rain we’ve had over the past few weeks has made digging very easy, so I’ve been able to expand my flowerbed by several feet since the last time I shared pictures here. I have purchased but not yet added higher-quality dirt and mulch, so you can see the rock-filled clay soil that I am attempting to grow things in!
I’m in the middle of transplanting things that I put too close together or that are too tall or short for their current locations, setting out mums and pansies, and adding some peonies and irises that were my grandmother’s, removed from her garden because they house was recently sold.
I may have mentioned before that I am a pretty lazy gardener and I don’t really follow the rules, so we will have to wait for spring to see what comes of all this. In the meantime, I am having a lot of fun. Writing and gardening are the two activities that I never have enough time for AND which make me happiest.
