The Tiny Topiary are Progressing

After propagating 2 of our rosemary and lavender in July and transplanting the cuttings in August, I started shaping the plants in September.

Even now these tiny topiary are sweet.
This is how the tiny topiary looked on the day I pinched the side leaves.
Here are the same 2 plants (plus others) progressing.

One month later there’s been some good growth and sturdiness to the plants.

In addition to the herb topiaries I have 4 more hydrangeas that need a permanent home before winter sets in.

I hope there’s time and energy to do some planting before our first real freeze.

Eight quarts of burnished button mums and 3 large pots of blue asters should come back next year if we plant them in the right spot.

I think my fall color plants should also go into the ground this year.

Is it too early to start thinking about Christmas trees?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
