With anticipation we are putting our garden to bed for the winter. We raked leaves, spread compost, and put winter veggies in the ground. Holes are dug for the new trees. We lost our old dog, Izzie, not long ago, so a dogwood in her memory will go in one of the side yards and a Raywood Ash will go in out back to create some shade on a future sunny day. It’s time to plan our winter projects. We are fortunate to live in an area that we can do projects at this time of year. We have fences and gates to repair and I’d like to build some cat shelters for the feral cats that live in our yard. I’m sure Chris has a different list, but eventually they will all get done. We may have to flip a coin for whose project goes first. Then again, we may just sit back with a cup of coffee and plan our projects for spring. No doubt they will include fences and gates. Enjoy the peace in your garden this winter. Soon enough we will be looking forward to spring when things wake up and bloom.
