I spent the morning on leaf duty again, raking and using the leaf vac to clear off the back patio and perennial beds. Iâ€™m already looking forward to harvesting all the leaf compost Iâ€™m sure to have come spring, but itâ€™s hard to believe the holiday season is just around the corner.
I have always been a big magazine reader, especially those related to gardening. Although my preferred magazines have changed over the years, for the past 20 I have subscribed to at least three different ones at any given time.
Iâ€™m crazy about azaleas and rhododendrons, so Iâ€™m particularly appreciative of the Rapallo municipal gardening department this time of year. Theyâ€™ve scattered huge potted azalea and rhododendron plants throughout the city center this week.
