Man, what a week. I got in after midnight Monday night. So, I guess that was actually Tuesday morning? Anyway, jet lag kicked my ass. Not to mention that I was running John’s business *and* trying to work my job. Obviously, I had to cut my hours at my job this week to do this. Then, just as I was feeling better – I stayed up way too late to watch the Broncos on Thursday night. At least they won. I can’t wait for John to get back Saturday night!!
The garden is winding down. I need to get some mums. I used to have some in the garden, but they did not come back this year.
Lots of cheerful black-eyed Susans still.
In several places:
My lone tiki torch:
The knockout rose keeps plugging along. This is such a prolific bloomer all season.
These plants are flowering tobacco. For the last couple years, I struggled to grow these from seed and ended up with 1 single bloom last year. All that trouble and it looks like it reseeded itself and these sprung up seemingly overnight. I think these are too late growing to bloom this year, but I will leave them just in case. Normally I pull anything up that is right by the path, but what the heck?
The wishbone flowers. These are very sweet and just terrific bloomers all season, happy annuals that they are.
Lirope is blooming now. This is such a tough little plant. These are old, too. I have had them probably 4 or 5 years now?
And the other fall favorite – the Autumn Joy Sedum.
This is still pretty light in color, but it’s early yet.
No sighting of the momma and kittens since before I left for Vegas. That doesn’t necessarily mean they aren’t there; I just haven’t seen them, but hopefully someone scooped them up.
We have a nice Saturday on tap in the mid 70s and I am going to go for an ice cream ride since the shops will all be closing soon for the season. Fall is in the air!
