Bed of Dreams ~




















This year's leaves will fill the back flower bed.
It runs one third the length of my mini-forest. 
The bed is 2 feet wide and thirty feet long. 
Compost and fertilizer will top it out.
Just before spring I'll till the soil, mixing everything well.
Finally... sow all the flower seeds, collected from other beds.
I hope it will be amazing!

Now that's a "Bed off Dreams"!

Do you make Autumn plans for Spring planting?

    1. My neighbor brings out all the stuff she's grown in pots over the winter. Her patio is lovely every spring.

  3. I don't plant, so I'll have to say a solid no. But what you're planning sounds great :)

    1. The hard part is remembering which seeds go in the back. I want the taller growing plants in the back row of this bed.

  4. I don't plant either. I trim hedges in the fall. Close enough?

    1. Shadow, I had a green bush, one year that I wired fake flowers on. A lady stopped by and wanted a cutting off of it. It was so funny. My boredom with this bush gave me a laugh.

  6. Instead of raking, I may try that approach this year.
    Don't think Mrs. Penwasser will buy it, though.

    1. Hey Al - I do it every year. Last year I put them on top of ivy to slow the plant's progress up the house brick wall. It worked well. No ivy this year.

    1. I hope so Pat - as I said to someone else - I need to make sure I put the seeds in the right spots.

  8. I'm always reading in magazines and newspapers about 'What to do in the garden this week' but I never do it! When I retire (soon) I will take more care of the garden. Honest, I will!

  9. Should be super pretty. I actually like Autumn leaves... when there's no cat poo hiding in them

  10. Hi human, Dixie,

    Sorry I've not been commenting as of late. I'm been very busy looking after my human, Gary, who is not very well.

    Good to see you getting such attention with your pawesome pawsts! I shall go now and leave in you in peace!

    Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses,

    Penny xx
