November 2019

It's November, "how did that happen?"  Christmas is fast approaching, but I am soaking up all that Autumn has to offer while it is still here.  Recently I took advantage of the last of the Autumn display at the Butchart Gardens.  The maples were glorious, and the day was sunny and warm.  The gardeners were busy planting spring bulbs as well as decorating for the upcoming Christmas display Dec. 1st.
The following are some new projects to help you feel more comfortable now that there a chill in the air.
