Garden Snippets


Hello dear friends, it has been a while since I posted anything so I thought I would share a few quick photos of snippets from the garden.


We have two of these lovely concrete urns on our landing.  Chrysanthemums are widely available right now and I have been adding them to planters.




We recently added some laying hens to our collection.  Having fresh eggs every day is one of the many benefits of having a farm.  Recently however the hens have staged an escape from the hen house and while they enjoy the freedom they can destroy a garden in record time!


We have had a frost already and while the last week has been quite warm the flowers are now past their prime.


This waterfall in under review and will probably be moved to a different part of the koi pond next year.



I almost didnt see this little fellow curled up in the garden.



Pretty Holly has been struggling with arthritis in her hips and spine and was recently diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy. Her brother Drakk also developed the same condition which is not unusual in aging German Shepherds.  For now she is reasonably comfortable and is still able to amble around the property keeping an eye on things and we are enjoying being able to spend extra time with her.



The sedum is doing very well at this time of year.


Our ginko bilboa tree has lovely yellow leaves.  I love the shape!


Papery hydrangea flowers.


The chickens are out again!

For our Canadian visitors I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
