Although we had our first frost, we can still plant for next year’s garden. As long as the ground is not frozen we are good to go!
There may not be much stock left at the nurseries, but even better deals can be had with what’s left. Now is a great time to finish purchasing next year’s plants, dividing and moving things around to tweak the beds.
In my neck of the woods a lot of tree foliage has fallen. There are some trees with foliage left, but the woods behind my house are looking pretty sparse. With the leaves fallen, I want to show you how there’s still color in my gardens through foliage. Certain plants are meant to be at their peak this time of year and I wanted to highlight some in case you want to add to your gardens.

What Do You Think?
Don’t you just love all that fall color? I am so happy I added some new shrubs and trees to the beds and can’t wait to see how they look next year! In the next week or so, I’m going to tuck more bulbs in the beds for early spring color before the ground freezes. I’m a little late getting it done, but better late than never!
