Most of the gardens here are in that winter slow down stage with the exception of a few such as this giant banana which is still looking amazingly strong even after being pummelled a few weeks ago by 65 mph winds.
The dahlias and zinnias in MeMas picking garden are still supplying the house with cut flowers.
But winter is definitely around the corner so the Yuma Garden.........
.......is now crowding the greenhouse for winters duration.
And taking up Yuma's residence is my dwarf Ginkgo.
Which is just beginning to show some fall color
After burning up two pumps ($300.00 each) in the Koi pond I built screens out of plastic pipe and bird netting to catch fall leaves.
We also went up to the family cabin this last weekend and while the lovely MeMa climbed ladders and removed all of the leaves from the roof and cleaned gutters I cut this nice trailer load of Hemlock to keep the home fire burning.
