We had an exceptional November and December.I couldn't believe I was out looking at an old spot that needed a change due to tree cutting.
The Chatham Hosta garden normally is part shade because of the fir trees.

Two trees were cut due to disease.
This garden has always been the stepchild and often had spotty care.
We were also having sidewalk work done to the front ,there were slate slabs left over so I used some to make a path in front of the two iron seats.

This was a grass and weed area.
New Front sidewalk

My SIL hauled the stone and placed them. This will be the first year I will contract for outside garden help. Just turned 80 in Jan. Gotta face it,it's just too hard to do everything especially cleaning spring and fall.

Nothing new to be seen. We planted some Iris reticulata but they are under the snow. I had bought a rabbit (cast iron) to put in my circle of snow crocus, but they had disappeared so I put the rabbit in that spot & the new iris bulbs are there.

The chairs belonged to DD#3. She didn't want her husband to take them when they split up 4 years ago.
She doesn't have a place for them at her new place.

That area doesn't really function, Its just a spot that looks logical.
