gardener’s knee and other tales of the november garden

Well dear readers, my gardening days are finished for 2019. Thank you left knee.

Torn meniscus. It’s really painful. More painful then when the meniscus in my right knee went a couple of years ago. And what is even worse is this is the knee that never had problems.

And the way our healthcare system works, I won’t even be able to get an MRI to confirm the areas of damage for days. The whole thing is a study in frustration….and some really wicked pain.

I don’t know exactly how I did it. I did plant a lot of bulbs and some witch hazels a couple of weeks ago. And it was a surprisingly robust planting season for 2019.

These photos are this week and last week. Fall is here and there is a different kind of beauty.

The trees are almost done and the colors are still lovely.

My Sochi Tea Plant is blooming! It’s so pretty!

I guess gardening day dreaming season is starting early for me. I don’t think I will even be able to use my leaf shredder to make leaf mulch.

At the end of my 2019 season I am pleased. In spite of obstacles it was a great gardening season. I did lose a small kwanzan cherry but it was a sale plant from Home Depot and I should have known better because they don’t take great care of their plants.

I will check in here and there with any gardening related things that strike my fancy!

Thanks for stopping by.
