Main Rock Garden, October 14, 2013

Well, here we are at the end of another season. Almost all shrubby perennials are now coppiced, leaving the garden pretty much flat and ready for snow!! I also made a potent concoction of garlic, cayenne and vegetable oil and dispensed this around the perimeter of the garden, as I heard this can deter voles. I will try anything at this point! As I type this, it has been a great fall. As of November 3, there has been snow and a little more rain than usual, but our low temperature has been a very reasonable -9C. I will visit the garden next weekend, I hope, and I hope to find plants dormant and conditions as dry as possible. That is, if it isn't already snow-covered.
