You could be forgiven for thinking the November is a time when the garden starts to shut down for winter and nothing much is going on. Look more carefully and you might be surprised. November is often thought of as the start of the gardening year, the month when traditionally trees and shrubs are planted. But for me, the glory of November lies in the colours. Leaves are turning on the trees and even the dead stems of perennials provide a striking backdrop against a riot of gold, bronze, reds and browns.

Dard, you are a gardener after my own heart! I have new pansies in the ground, a container of them that have lasted a full year, eunonymous shrubs that provide veriagated color year round, and yews that provide color in the dreary Winter.

I have garlics planted that are sending shoots up.

This Winter, I can build the parts for a pair of serious compost bins (1/2" hardware wire sides and tops).

And in only a month, I get to order new seeds. In February, I can start annual flowers and veggies. In March, I look forward to ordering new perennials to replace those that didn't do well in my tricky half shaded beds.

And even the next couple of weeks, I get to drive the mower across the lawn several times to shred the leaves. The grass loves that! The grass loves the shredded leaves and organic fertilizer and they will love it when I go around the yard with the aerator too.

But possibly the best part of this time of yearis spreading the free mulch I get from the Count recycling Center. A few years of that and I think I FINALLY have the Winter weeds under control.

Happy gardening...
