Putting the Garden to Sleep

The cold winds are blowing, but the weekend was nice.
So Mr. and I spent the weekend putting things away
cutting the garden back.
Things look so bare.

putting the hanging geraniums and ferns in the truck, going to over winter
at Mr. business.

this is the same place as my header picture.

So as we put the yard and cottage to bed.....

Ann-I would never have recognized that as your header picture! It is amazing what flowers do for a place. I am glad you got it put to bed before it gets any colder. I hope my New Dawn survives through the winter. xo Diana

Our garden now sleeps under a bit of snow that actually will be melted away by the week end leaving behind a nice bit of moisture. Amazing that your rose is still blooming.

Love your vintage watering cans, Ann! While I miss the growing season and all the flowers, it's nice to have a bit of a break from it all!

Everything looks very seasonal...pretty in it's own way...although it's hard to compete with Spring! Great that you have someplace for your potted plants to stay over the winter.

Gosh your roses are so beautiful! I like seeing your row of white chairs too. I need some place like your husband's office to winter plants too. There's never any room in the house. The change over seems sudden to me this year. We just came inside, and now it's time to get ready for Christmas!

You are so lucky to have a place to overwinter your ferns and flowers. I had to trim my pretty fern way back to bring it in. When you pointed it out, I did recognize that as being the same place as the pic in your header, but it does look different now. It looks like winter. Love your watering cans. That is a pretty pink rose that you have.

It's always a bit sad but also a bit of relief for me when I put mine to rest. Nice to have a break, but I miss all that gorgeous color. Your header sure had me fooled. What a gorgeous place it becomes. Love your chippy chairs and your watering cans. We will both wait anxiously for Spring.
Hugs,
Jann

Ann, I love your header photo so much. I really love those watering cans too. Sad to see our gardens go ...but then during the snowy times...it's fun to dream of the new gardens in Spring. Stay healthy this winter. xoxo, Susie

How wonderful that you have somewhere to overwinter your flowers. I always feel the garden looks so sad this time of year.
