On Sunday I did the last bit of gardening or rather I tucked it in for winter.
I had already tucked the patio furniture in under a large green tarp and pulled the pots in under the balcony to protect them.
A couple of weeks ago I removed the gooseberry bush which stood in front of the composts and made them hard to reach. This is the clematis that covered the bush and also covers the compost bins. I cut it all off now and in spring it will grow back. Will sow new grass in front where there is now just dirt.
Bonus was on hand to supervise.
I’ve raked the lawn already but the apple tree is late dropping it’s leaves so I had to rake some more.
Now what’s left is to figure out where to put Christmas lights back here this year. Last year there was no deck and there was a large rose bush on the left hand side which I wrapped in lights. This year I’m thinking either in the apple tree or a wreath of some sort on the fence. We’ll see.
