Late Autumn in the Garden

Windowsill

During a break in the storms Perdita and Floradora contemplated the garden…

.

.

Shoes

…and then Tuesday loaned Floradora her red shoes…

.

.

Lupine

…so she could go out to help put the November garden to bed!

.

.

Apple!

After clipping away most of the dead Lupine, they found an apple hidden by a squirrel!

.

.

Root

They threw it in the compost, because we have chosen a different location for our new baby Gravenstein tree!

.

.

Buds

It is a semi-dwarf variety, and rather spindly at the moment, but it has some promising-looking buds!

.

.

Crocosmia

They walked through the rotten Crocosmia fronds which all had to be cut down to the soil level…

.

.

Compost

…along with the fading Red Chrysanthemums!

.

.

Mud

Floradora and Perdita were happy with their work in the garden…

.

.

Scrub

…and Floradora scrubbed the red shoes clean before returning them to Tuesday!

    • The garden does look much tidier now that the sticks, husks and fading flowers have been removed…it is great having Little Hittys to help, they can see things from a different angle and advise us about what needs attending to from closer to the ground.

    • We find our red Birkenstock clogs do help this gardener feel motivated…and thought Floradora would like to borrow Tuesday’s. She does need her own footwear though, it is taking a while to get that organized.

  1. Always a joy to see your garden and read what the HIttys plan. They are such hard working gardeners. Enjoyed every photo! and those pinnies!

    • We were reminded last time they ventured out into the garden, that a holland apron might help keep the slime off of their pretty new dresses! The weather has been stormy, but they were glad to take advantage of a short dry-ish spell to get a bit more garden tidying accomplished!
