My Cottage Garden Weeded

I am going to spread some more wood chips today. I have almost depleted my pile that has been sitting and simmering for about three years. They have decomposed enough that they have a rich brown color, almost like topsoil without the expense. The peonies have been chopped down to the ground and the boxwood have been trimmed with my "new" electric hedge clippers scored at the Firehouse Sale several weeks ago. I like putting gardens to sleep in preparation for the winter. Fall is such a great time to be outside. Have a great Columbus Day. xo

Looks like a lovely place to sit and enjoy the fresh air of fall.

Looks wonderful Rosemary, all your hard work shows. It is a very tidy and inviting space.
