More fall chores

We dug up some peony plants that were partially covered in semi-shade near the house.  They have been in the ground for 15+ years and had developed  an extensive root system.  After a lot of digging and trimming, they were transplanted to a sunny, protected spot along a wall in the perennial garden.

A new battery-powered trimmer makes a yearly chore easier and faster.  We have a lot of work to do as the process of putting our numerous perennial hedge plants to bed for the winter continues.

We covered the sedum plants with hoops and netting to protect them from deer who savor these blooms and blossoms.  It worked, and we got a decent show of color this year.

Inspector Suki overlooks the process (literally) as she drapes over the seven-foot high fence and walnut tree that marks a demarcation point between two of our multiple garden spaces.

She enjoys it very much when everyone is in the garden working together.
