Wet October day

Well, the sun is hiding behind dark, ominous clouds and the rain is coming down. I know my garden loves it and after a few warm days, I am quite happy sitting indoors. Just survived a bout of nasty flu and a quiet weekend inside with a great book sounds like a good idea. I did, however, take a quick walk around to see what needed my attention, but my plants all waved me inside. Β They are all happy. The Gardener can rest!Β xxx

The sage has re-grown from the old plant in the veggie bed. I am enjoying the flowers. The Chrysanthemums are also thriving.

Well, I thought I could pack away my fuzzy blankets – πŸ™‚ The cold is still creeping in this October month. Well, I’m gonna wrap up warm now and will see you all in the week.

Happy Gardening xxxx

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

I love the idea of your plants waving you indoors! I hope you’re feeling better… if a garden looks as good as yours does, you can afford to snuggle up with a good book and let the plants get on with their lives. The sage flowers are absolute beauties.

Sorry to hear you have been sick but your garden is indeed growing beautifully…so rest Barbie…I am curious to see how your potato bags do…I plant to plant more myself this spring…our Oct has been in the 60s which is warm and the rain is nourishing the newly planted lovelies here. Hoping you get some warmer weather soon..then there will be no stopping that wonderful garden of yours.

Sounds similar to our weather here in the northern U.S. on the other side of the seasonal calendar. The only difference is that my garden is going to sleep, and the rain is keeping me from a massive collection of Oak leaves covering my entire garden. Rain–good. Raking–bad. πŸ˜‰ Take advantage of those fuzzy blankets and rest well!

Wow, your garden is looking wonderful! Look at those potatoes, and those greens too! They look fabulous! We’re crossing our fingers for our first serious rain of the season this next week, that should roll in on Monday. Our parched gardens will be very grateful for a refreshing rain after being so dry since April!

hello my friend, I’ve arrived safe and sound in Germany. it is quite beautiful here with all the trees displaying their autumn co ours. Will try to take some photos. The weather is WARM, not what I expected. Tomorrow my Mom is taking me to a massive garden centre. Will take photos to show how they do it in Germany πŸ™‚

Love to you all

Hey, my friend! I am so glad to hear that you arrived safe. πŸ™‚
It would be so nice to see what’s happening in Germany this time of year. It is cold here and I have spent little time in the garden, just pulling weeds and general cleaning.
I am keen to see how the Garden Centres are in Germany. What’s growing now and just the variety. Can’t wait! Hugs to you xxxx
