Autumn "Cutting" 2013
This was the week to cut back the
perennials in the Gardens at Waters East.It takes hours and days, but always
happy to get it done.The next
step is to rake up all the cuttings from the garden rooms and move the piles to
a composting site.Lots of work
yet to do over the next two weeks.Happy to have this much done!
While moving around the gardens
cutting plants this week, a few photos were taken for the garden journal files
showing some of the remaining blooms and sights.Here are a few from the work this week.
