Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

A Bit of Garden Clean-up

The weather has turned surprisingly mild so I managed to get a bit more painting done outdoors.  The main thing we did in the garden was drain the hoses and put them away for winter storage.  We also drained the water lines shutting off the valves as well so there is no water in the lines.  It does freeze here over winter so this is a necessary part of fall garden clean-up.  It was nice to do a bit of puttering in the garden even though it was pretty much cleaning out.  Tomorrow is predicted to be warm and mild as well so it will be another raking the leaves day!
