Our first taste of Winter

Just two days ago I planted the last of the daffodil bulbs (generously donated by Dick Martin) and today it looks like this in the Garden!

So much for those golden autumn days … the pond is even frozen over.  I didn’t test it for skating or ice fishing, though.

Our gardening season is definitely over and now it will be a garden for the birds.  As we did our fall garden clean up we left many perennials (like these Purple Coneflower and Black Eyed Susan’s) and ornamental grasses standing.

They, along with the crab apples will provide sustenance through the winter for the wildlife in our Garden.  Come for a visit before the snow gets too deep !
