    #3 @Andrew Porter, thanks for sharing again, you are going to keep me busy planting in the spring Andrew. I do like Hydrangeas & have them currently. Your article is very well detailed. great post!!!! Many thanks again. You live in a great area of many diverse birds too Andrew, I read somewhere that there are 200+ species of birds in the UK of which more than one-half are migratory. Many species are sufficiently versatile to adapt to changing conditions, and it is estimated that in lots of gardens they have a higher bird density than any kind of woodland area. I enjoyed many trips to the UK when I worked for Exel Logistics, now owned by DHL. I'm a great fan of Dr Who & was sorry to hear that they closed the Dr Who museum there.

    #1 @Aleta Curry Your observation is spot on. A 2015 DIY project was building a raised bed for growing tomatoes. My father lives near me now. He loves gardening, but he's also 89 years-old and any gardening activity that requires kneeling or a lot of bending just wouldn't work for him. There are past projects I've either abandoned or vowed to never take on again due to expenses, poor results or time requirements. The joy goes out of DIY projects then.

    Nice one, @Richard Buse, but 'lazy' gardening projects are not just for the lazy. Thanks to the DNA lottery, some of us are born physically weaker, and some suffer debilitating conditions or get weaker due to illness or injury. You're quite correct to factor in skill, time and money; I've seen too many people take on projects when it would be faster and cheaper to just buy the thing outright!

I love gardening, but I've learned that joy diminishes when the amount of time required for it gets too great. Doing this helps keep gardening at an enjoyable level for me.

    This is very helpful, Richard. We have only a back porch for our flowers and plants. If it snows, they will get a thin layer. Some surprisingly come back in the spring. Currently, we have a lot of spider plants and trying to protect them from freezing temps. We live north of Atlanta.

    #1 @Sarah Elkins. What you're doing sounds great. I love gardening, but around seven hours ago, it started to feel like a part-time job or daily obligation, rather than a source of enjoyment. That led me to thinking about things I could do to reduce the costs and the amounts of time I was committing to it. if you want, I can send more photos to you. I've found Pinterest to be a good source for ideas, too.

    @Richard Buse, we've been working on decreasing our overall lawn over the years as well, it's nice to see some of these pictures for ideas. Our family has been building raised beds, significantly reducing our maintenance hours in the yard by planting perennials with drip irrigation, and extending our brick patio to put more rain collecting potted plants around its perimeter. I love our yard and it just keeps getting better!

    Fall isn't a bad time to plant trees and shrubs, and garden centers will mark them down, sometimes to 10% or 20% of their original price to make room for cut xmas trees. I've gotten some rarities that way, including a paperbark maple.
