Hello again my Tuesday Friends :)
We are finally getting some cooler weather here. Nights are chilly and days are beautiful. It's still overly dry so I'm watering the perennials to keep them alive.
Actually there are a lot of them blooming again but not with the full summer vigor. Some of the annuals are still going strong.
I love the Sweet Alyssums that just keep spreading and reseeding themselves all summer.
The perennials are not looking as well....
Looking at the photo of St. Francis I noticed that a tomato plant has sprouted up there and has green tomatoes on it. A gift from nature that probably would have been pulled had I seen it while out there. :)
I've been busy cleaning out the veggie garden so I can cover with cardboard and plastic . The ongoing battle to get rid of that dratted Bermuda Grass that is taking over. I actually broke out the round up for some of the heavy areas :'( That area will be covered and unused for at least 2 years if not three.
The stack in the right hand corner is cardboard and pallet boards and more cardboard will be coming home tomorrow. Along with more black plastic .
Other areas are cleaned up and just waiting for straw bales and spring to arrive. The old kiddy pool will probably become a strawberry bed next spring if I don't decided to plant something else instead.
The last of the Blackeyed Susans and the Echinacea.
The ornamental grasses really at their best ♥
The plants around the fishpond are more than a little overgrown and will need some major TLC this week as the leaves are starting to fall so it's time to cover the pond so it doesn't fill up. The sole remaining gold fish will go into a tank in the basement for the winter.
We can't have a post with out Mini Me and here she is leased up in the back yard watching me work hard.
She had a ball chasing the leaves and grasshoppers around the yard.
