Preparing for winter, thinking of spring

The chairs are stacked, and the cushions are stowed away in the basement.

The new composter is set up on bricks, within reach of the driveway. I will actually be able to compost coffee grounds and filters all winter long!

I'm still thinking about the old bunny hutch. The hutch is old, not the bunnies. Our pet rabbits have house privileges now; we don't use the hutch any more. I've been stashing my garden tools there. The debate: should I take down the hutch completely? The rhubarb could expand into this area. Or should I keep it, take off or repair the doors so it's more usable? I think I'll decide in the spring.

Still to be done: put away the little cello-playing frog (hiding behind white roses) and take care of the roses. The rosebush on the right is a knock-out breed; according to my current information (provided by my mother) it doesn't need to be cut back and insulated for the winter. It's trying to send up one more bloom before the snow comes. Should I chance it?

I had a similar situation with my delphiniums--going for a THIRD bloom!
Happy composting!
