Garden Clean up…
Fall is such a beautiful time of year with the glorious autumn colors. But its also made me feel somewhat overwhelmed with the amount of gardening chores that is calling out to me! I decided that it was time to call in a crew to give our landscape a major overhaul. Weeding, shaping, cutting back of trees and shrubs, removal of a few overgrown plants that were once a small focal point and moving around a few trees that were growing too close together! Oh, and quite a bit of fertile mulch to be spread!
A cottage garden is beautiful in the summertime, but can quickly grow out of control! As you can see here in this photo below – this is my rose terrace as of this morning that is filled with new starts of whatever has re-seeded itself over the summertime.
There are still a few blooms from the roses that are still gracing the garden along with the turning colors of maple trees are giving me a bit of eye candy when i look out into the gardens.
I also came across this fall blooming camellia while taking these photo’s this morning that I wanted to share with you.
I’ll be sharing photo’s of the landscape with you tomorrow after the clean up is completed. It is a huge sigh of relief to have help in the garden this year and a huge weight lifted off my shoulders of all that needed to be done before winter.
