It has been so cold around here and we have had so many frosts. It is surprising that anything is growing, but growing it is.
There is often no flowers, or very few, at this time of the year, but it seems the early onset of Autumn and winter has brought many of the bulbs out. I was shocked when I walked out this morning to see the Irises flowering already.
I suspect because I did quite a bit of work in the garden over summer that that could be helping a lot. Plus all the rain we have been having. I haven’t had to do much watering at all which is a bonus.
A lady walking past the house the other day did see me doing some watering and wanted to know why I was watering when we have had so much rain. I had to explain I was just watering a few things. Things that I want to keep alive and that we hadn’t had any rain for a few days.
It is good to see that I can save some money on water this year.
A Garden Update
Some things have been changing out in the garden and I decided it was time to do a video update to show you. I have uploaded it to the YouTube channel that I started for this.
I changed the name of this YouTube channel for fun. Though, I’m sure it want get looked at a lot. It is nice to keep it separated from the other one.
Getting out the Macro
While I was out videoing the garden I could see that there were a few flowers out there so I put on the macro lens and headed out. I don’t do this enough, but it was nice wandering around. Of course once you get the camera out then you just keep seeing more and more flowers.
I have a gallery of images for you. They are selected bunch from the garden. The lilies are looking gorgeous and there are going to be so many and I might have to plan a few different sessions with them.
I hope you enjoy the photos and video. We can talk soon.
