It seems every year I swear to clean up and organize the garden shed (or at least my side of it ?) and put the garden to bed "well and proper" ... "proper" didn't happen , let alone "well"
But ? .. it was a more gentle Autumn than most so the garden decided it would take care of itself for the most part and I so appreciated that !
Sweet Autumn clematis is brilliant on the gate arbor in the ally way .. it is smothered in tiny white dancing flowers with a wonderful scent .. something to look forward to with Fall.
It gets cut down quite short because it grows like a monster .. so I make sure I have it tamed as early as possible before it goes mad.
I have quite a few hydrangea .. I have been sticking to the type that blooms on new wood as well as old.
It just makes more sense to me that way.
I can't imagine not have herbs dotted all over the place.
Ilse Khrone Superior has out done itself with roses ... I hope she makes it through this very tricky weather !
