The Garden

Greenie sighting! Which, of course, has me cruising the pictures here and thinking about.... spring? No. How about winter-interest in the garden? I can go there. I've actually done a pretty good job of putting my yard to bed this fall. A few select planters are on the porch with fake fall foilage and flowers.... a few fake fruits & a gourd or two. Maybe I'll take some pictures next week...... The darn deer actually uprooted the fake sunflowers on the corner of the porch.... hungry little buggers. They've made short work of any and all leaves in our yard.... truly, Hot Stuff says that makes living here worth it even if nothing else does..... no raking. My big fear is Sweet Boy realizing (the hard way) the "raisins" in the yard aren't really raisins.....

We're calling our lack of raking mulching!

The same goes for the rabbit and deer droppings, unless they're too close to the house.

I'm already thinking about spring too. I just put in a bunch of tulips and aliums. Last weekend I put in yard lights. WOW!!! what a difference it makes now when coming home in the dark.
