The sun made an appearances in between the clouds this morning.
We're all buttoned up here for the winter and the landscape looks completely different than it was only a month ago.
As you can see winter like weather has already hit our area. Thank goodness we don't live a bit further north because they got 9" in some areas! Way too early for that kind of nonsense!!
Those pots are going inside this weekend. I was dragging my foot on letting go all the way! Some of the oak and beech trees are still hanging onto their leaves.
I cut back all my hydrangeas and I even shortened up my spireas. I hope they'll bloom next year- some bloom on old wood and some on new. All the small odds and ends have been put away.
Dan cut wood pieces to fit the pots. It's a marine grade plywood which will last for many seasons.
I took these pictures last week before the snow came.
The fountain all prepped (I think it looks like the Command Module from the old Apollo spacecrafts!)
I hope you are ready for winter!
