Monday is the last day the city will pick up garden waste so I got some garden cleanup done. My composer if full to the brim so it has to go out in bags for city pickup. (the city will compost it)
here are a few of the bags
Fall came very late this year so there are still trees with leaves and I could rake every day ….because they blow in from everywhere.
Lots of plants needed to be cut back…..if they don’t get done now it will have to be done in the spring.
Some things I don’t cut back. I think the ornamental grasses look great all winter.
I have some ferns that are evergreen.
Hydrangea look pretty even when they lose all their leaves.
The oak leaf hydrangea has pretty fall color
The dogwood still has pretty colored leaves.
The fairy rose is not ready to quit
lots of leaves to clean out of the beds.
when I look past the work it does look pretty.
I did a bit of quilting. I am making another bag using recycled Jeans legs. Doing the free motion quilting on the Singer 66-18. Here is the front panel.
