Bits and pieces are all that is left of the Tall Flower Meadow. I chopped most of it down and left it where it fell. I could have left it standing all winter, but another garden lives here half of the year.
Steadily, I have been planting the Under Garden of winter interest to get me through the cold times.
Beyond evergreen plants, there is massive stone structure in the garden that is half hidden during the time of vegetation.
There are tiny spirit baubles about filled with the mana of Wamboldtopia.
There is the beginning of big mana in the form of more stone structure. I need rocks, lots of rocks.
Drying grasses slowly reveal some clear round glass.
Progress has been made. I will still have a garden in the winter's barren time.
There are regular distractions in this garden in the wilderness. This is the trash I found halfway down my driveway this morning. Now how did that get here?
One ginormous rock lives in the forest. The stream runs beneath it.
An old garden folly lives by the edge of the scenic byway. Those trees in the house have got to go.
But there are plenty chores to do in the winter garden. I'm seeing a 30% chance of snow in the diagnosis for tomorrow night, followed by a day of blustery cold with a high below forty degrees. That is potentially below my minimum operating temperature.
Tomorrow while I can, the basement patio will be cleaned and made ready to tote gravel. I might even start toting some gravel. The basement patio is going to be my big winter project this year.
