I cut and edged the grass early Thursday before it got too hot and then in the evening right before a rain shower I snapped these photos. The crepe myrtles are really beautiful and full this year. Every time I have to drive some where I see the prettiest blooms and colors. We only have white in the front.
Some of my verbena plants have died and I have pulled them out. This bit that is left is spilling over the rock wall. I don't know what killed the other plants. One day it looked good and then I noticed it was dying. Probably insects.
It has been so terribly hot this year and I know the flowers will start looking really pathetic in August. Better enjoy them now.
We are in Nashville with our son and family and on Saturday they are having a gender reveal cookout party to find out what baby # 3 is. They are expecting over fifty friends and neighbors. Should be lots of fun.
