Winter in my garden

I have to say that I was dreading winter – but there have been some really warm days and the rainy days have been spent indoors with a warm fire and always some seeds to plant on the back deck. I want to show you what’s been going on in my garden, especially in the back where the new meadow is growing so beautifully. I am really enjoying my garden and the chickens have been kept under lock and key…. well, they have “play time” which is well supervised! They have areas where they are allowed and we stand guard while they scratch and dig!

Here are some photos of the raised beds – now prepared with seeds sown.

New beginnings – these last two photos are of the new bed I have created at the back of the garden to hide the bare wall. I hope that it springs to life this summer! Well, I hope your gardening days are bringing you joy! What’s happening in your garden?

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.

Interesting that your Gladiolas flowers now (winter with you) and here it also flowers now (HIGH SUMMER). Plants never cease to amaze me. I agree with ‘plant postings above, it looks more like spring or summer in your garden. Christina

That is winter in your garden?! Wow! It looks like your winter climate is like my “normal” summer climate. Everything looks so healthy and lush. Don’t you just love Nasturtiums? I need to plant them again one of these days…

Looking at your winter garden reminds me a bit of what winter brought to Niagara Falls. We had far too much warm weather and plants bloomed for a long time. At least where you are, it is supposed to be warmer. The allysum was the longest lasting, and it looks pretty in you meadow.
