Some pics from my garden and deck. Can you believe it was Oct 21? I did lots of new planting last month in the dark shaded corner of the garden, shown in the first picture. I hope to have some pretty mountain laurel flowers every spring and some nice big hostas popping up shortly after they bloom. The impatiens in front can be whatever I want each year, since they die in the fall. Next year I want to make a big carpet of them-I didn't plant these until August.
The reason I took these is simple. It will brighten my day when it's dark at 4:30 and the snow is coming down.
