It is that time again..
Time to send our sweet beds to rest..

If you have a mirco brewery in your area..
Spent barley is a wonderful dressing for the winter sleep our plants need..
When the spring rains come, it makes a tonic for even the weariest soils..

Salt hay is a wondeful cover as well
Devoid of all seed, it keeps the beds snug , and decomposes easily!

Pine needles and branches can work well with any acid loving plants.

Aged manure is always a treat for the soil, and plants that need a winters rest..
Just make sure it is not hot..
If you have a friend who beds their horses on straw..
that is fantastic,, shavings tend to be hot for a few weeks..

I want to share with all of you a poem I wrote about putting the garden to bed..

Garden Lullaby

Summer says her last good-bye
The autumn sun, low in the sky ,

Chill mornings tell me , time is nigh
To sing my garden lullaby.

Sweetdreams Foxglove,
Delphinium, go to sleep .

Nightnight Speedwell,
Asters stop your creep.

Close your black eyes Susan,
Rest well until the spring.

Naptime Larkspur,
Your song again you'll sing .

One last goldfinch lights before you go,
Soon you lovley coneflowers will slumber 'neath the snow

Good night my garden,
Enjoy your winters sleep .

When the sweet sun warms the earth again ,
Your beauty I will keep .

This is published on the web and copywritted smile.gif

I hope you all enjoy a wonderful fall and Harvest!

In Service to the Dream,
Paula

It is beautiful. I wonder if you hear the music to it? It certainly would make a wonderful song.
