MY GARDEN IS TIRED

IT DEFINITELY IS AUTUMN NOW AND MY GARDEN LOOKS TIRED, MOST OF THE PLANTS, TREES AND SHRUBS ARE EAGER TO GO TO SLEEP AND TO PREPARE THEMSELVES FOR NEXT SPRING. I OFTEN WISH I COULD DO THAT TOO……OFCOURSE I HAVE QUITE A BIT OF EVERGREENS IN MY GARDEN TOO OTHERWISE WINTER WOULD BE TOO DULL.
