Good Bye 2016

And to all a good night .......

December 18 More Snow

The title says it all ..........

December 12 - Snow

We have snow ....... looks like the end of the gardening season for this year




October 8 - Plot 5 Revisited

It has been a while, so here we are in early October and the Plot 5 Dahlias are finally taking off, but the rains have come as well .......... The purple dahlia is "Vancouver", not my usual colour choice, but this was a bonus give away from a local garden store .......

and some lovely butter yellow marigolds from a Butchart Garden mix; the salad greens were unfortunately rather bitter, so were not used .......
 and a pic of Plot 5 in October .... 

October 7 - Container Garden Update

Well, these plants took their time, but look amazing now that Fall is here ..... the coleus just kept getting better and better this season ..... and the red Chrysanthemum was a return from last year

Tomatoes are now gone, but the peppers and eggplant are still looking good.  Three of the emptied tomato containers were planted with West Coast Seeds Mild and Winter Blend Mescluns and Renee's Braising Mix
