Hello and Welcome! It's Virginger with your Thanksgiving Day garden report. Happy Thanksgiving to all of our furiends! We hope your dinner doesn't hide on you!
This will be my final report for the year. It has been almost a month since my last post, it is getting colder, the plants have stopped growing and blooming. The trees have shed their leaves. Mum has gotten all of the outside stuff cleaned up for the season.
Yep, that is me sitting on the grill for now. Mum took the big chairs in but has a little one outside to site on while she cooks outside. Yes she is still doing that for now.
The far end of the garden, the red twigged dogwoods waiting for some white snow to show off their bright red branches over the winter. Mum says the snow can wait for a while to come.
The fevver bath with a few plants still present. Mum says the fevvers need places to sit while waiting their turn at the feeder.
Longer shot showing the bath and feeder and plants. The few leaves here will just get buried in the snow and rot away over the winter.
The big view of the back from the gate. Looks decent mum, you did another great job this fall.
The view from the patio, this is what the boys see from inside looking back at the fevver feeders.
Mum pushed down the robin's nest from earlier this year. The bottom was just the rain downspout. Those little fevvers had to sit on metal.
The grape arbor still has grapes on it. Frozen now, so frozen grape pops. In time the fevvers will eat these, frozen or not.
Yep, we see a junco on the arbor looking for a snack. Help yourself little guy.
A few things are trying to grow. The grass where they had to dig up to fix the road is sort of coming in, at the far end it looks greener.
You can sort of tell little shoots of grass are coming through. It has been OK, warmish on some days. Heck today and tomorrow we may be near 60 degrees F! That is warm for this time of year, the boys may get some window whiffing in.
Then the little buggers that mum says grow no matter how cold it is, yep, dandylions! We found this one in the front yard this past week.
So thanks for all of your visits this year. I will be jumping into my nice warm cupboard, sort of like Zolie has with Scooby, Shaggy and Scout. See you next year!
