in preparation for the colder weather I’ve now brought in the three plants that live in the house…

last week the Japanese maple came in and settled back in beside the living room window… the leaf colours had already started to change

a few days back, the mandevilla came in… I added fresh earth and sprayed it with insecticide to remove any creepy crawlers that might have wanted to take a trip…

it had been hanging outside and really wanted to lean forward… eventually three elastics helped make it stand up straight… hope it doesn’t decide to fall over in the dining room…

yesterday I brought the hibiscus inside…. excited to see it has buds on it;-)…

might also bring in a couple of others to see if they can survive the winter in the house…

and tonight I’ve covered the dahlias… the temperature is likely going to -4 Celsius… four of them have buds and I’m hoping they get to open… for two of them, it will be the first time they bloom and I am interested to see how they look…
