Nearly 80 degrees today and I spent the day dumping more plants. It is supposed to be nice and warm all week. This is very unusual October weather in Northern Michigan. As I am dumping perfectly nice plants from their summer home, I just couldn't toss them onto the compost heap. I decided to take them from their pots and just plop them someplace in the rock garden where I can still enjoy them for a week or two. I just set them on top of the ground behind boulders, etc. They have grown an extensive root system so the soil just stays in place even without the pots.
So for the next couple of weeks I have new things to look at...and you all know how much I like change!
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
