.......oh what a beautiful day. Yep, I was humming that while cutting the grass this morning. Could it be that fall is in the air? Surely not down here in hot Georgia. The humidity was so much lower today and a wonderful breeze was blowing. Did any of you fellow Atlanta area Georgians feel it? Then as quick as I was getting all excited about the cooler air it then got hot and icky after lunch. I knew it was too good to be true. Anyhoo I got the yard done and now I am going to share a few shots of my August yard.
The verbena I planted about four or five weeks ago is doing very good.
Some of my blanket flowers did not make it, but a few are doing o.k.
The monkey grass (lirope) is blooming now.
This pot of flowers is still doing good. I have to water it every day.
Peter is surviving the heat.
This is what I was doing today after I cut the grass I refreshed the pine straw in the beds.
Looks so much better after putting out new pine straw.
More paint is wearing off of the bench.
The crepe myrtles are shedding their bark.
The rose of Sharon is still blooming.
The crepe myrtles are slowing down on their blooms.
The new ornamental grasses that I just planted are doing well and blooming.
Crepe myrtle blooms were quite large this year.
We grew our first tomatoes here this year.
Out by the pond.
This is the first year that this crepe myrtle in the back yard has bloomed. It is in a bad spot though for coming down the deck steps.
Bailey says hi from the sunroom window.
Joining Tootsie Time for Fertilizer Friday for the first time.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend and y'all come back now,
BTW the other day in my Ahoy Mates blog post I asked you to guess what the red ticking pillow was on the bed and several of you are very smart and guessed dog bed. Yes, it was bought for Miss Bailey and she will not use it so in it's second life it is a decorative pillow.
