I'm putting up two posts today, so there is one new one below this one in case you didn't catch that. :-)
We've had frost, but I don't think we've had a hard freeze yet. This past weekend I finally did some work in the gardens. I cleaned things up, cut things back, and planted mums, asters and bulbs. Hopefully the mums and asters will make it through the winter to next year.
I added bulbs on the west, front side of the house to try and balance things out. Hopefully next Spring I'll have a shot of tulips, grape hyacinths and daffodils here!
Some things on the patio have not been hit by frost - one impatiens, a firecracker fuscia, and the eucalyptus.
The Japanese maple out back looks nice!
And this is that bush that has great little white flowers in the spring.
And the miscanthus looks pretty good, too! I should move these out from behind the Rose of Sharon.
The herbs are still doing okay, and it's going to be in the 60's the next few days, so I haven't done anything with them yet.
The Tabasco peppers were just ripening when it got cold, but we still got a few red ones! When Caleb and Ethan were here, Caleb ate one! He suffered for it, and ate another one two days later, the crazy kid.
