Some pictures from my garden... August 15, 2019
(Click on the picture to enlarge and get a closer look.)
It is breathtaking this year and the pictures do not do it justice. I am happy to share the beauty with my neighbors and visitors. I have so many people tell me how much they enjoy either walking by or driving by and some even stop to tell me that it is so pretty. I enjoy all the work involved in making it this way. And I love all the little surprises that I find also. For instance, I found that weeds actually help to mulch the soil and keep it from drying out. I had a lot of them this year, thanks to all the heat we have had this summer. I have replaced a lot of them (the weeds and grasses) with real bark mulch, now that the temperatures have gotten back to the 80's where they belong. I love being out there, working, sweating, whatever. It will be gone all too soon, as the temperatures start getting cooler and Fall and Winter set in! And so the cycle continues...
'Til next time, Love ya, Jean
