In this case, the dip is personal. Do you ever go through periods when you just don’t have the “get up and go” in your gardening? I’m kind of like that right now. The weather is perfect for gardening and maybe I can get out there and accomplish those many jobs on my list. But my energy and motivation for it is flagging. It has nothing to do with less of a love for the garden…. but everything to do with so many other obligations sapping all of my focus.
Fall is always a crunch time for me: schooltime, house projects, yardwork, and beginning preparations for the holidays!
But the rains have softened the ground and I will be more satisfied with the work I do in planting new things if I can just jumpstart myself to “git-er-done”. I think I’m becoming a redneck…. all I need are yard ornaments, now. LOL!so for my friends out there in the great webworld: do as I say, and not as I do; take advantage of this perfect gardening weather to plant, and get the garden ready for the winter. Can’t start any sooner 🙂
I know I promised pictures… and I have them, but they all need to be resized for the web. I personally dislike heavy loading blog pages, and I try to reduce the load time on my pictures when they are posted. Even with higher speed internet which I just had installed- time is precious!* In this post is one new photo: The driveway border with the Ninebark ‘Diablo’, and the new addition of a threadleaf coreopsis to harmonize with the daylily, footed by a juniper, Cotoneaster ‘Tom Thumb’ and Dianthus gratianopolitanus. Like the combination?
Internet-wise I have been changing the old garden pages- adding a few new bits of writing while I refurbish the look. All the garden pages will look like my “Tulips and Daffodils” page.
