Winter is coming




Days in autumn are really short, and the weather is not spoiling us, so willing or not we're experiencing very strong winds, rain and snow from time to time. 
  



In November I dug up all the dahlias, some of them were in a bad condition due to heavy September rains. 
Currently, they're stored in a cold basement to overwinter. 
I'm going to check them every two weeks to see if they're not rotting.

 This year the first frost came a bit later than the previous year. 
This allowed us to enjoy some flowers in November and December.

Then at the beginning of December it snowed a lot but some of the plants didn't even notice it. 
They keep flowering until now :)

I don't want to but I'm forced to take a winter gardening break. 
It's cold outside and it will be much colder.
I love working in the garden but I'll have to wait 2 or 3 months to start doing anything outside. 

Now, I'm going to focus on Christmas holidays, bake some gingerbread cookies with my children and decorate the house :)
