My post being late is the probably extreme understatement...but I did manage to at least some pictures. You know, the greatest thing about plants is many will survive without you. We are due for a freeze watch so it is time to say goodnight to the flowers....
During October we went on our fourth anniversary to the Smoky Mountains. The lady bugs were everywhere...I really meant to steal a few and bring them back!
Finally got the mower restarted and mowed the areas around the pool
Roses around the pool
Still in bloom but would be more if they had been deadheaded.
Bottlebrush is still blooming
Weeds on the side beds came back
Juniper trees are just not thriving well...I think I'm gonna use annuals from now on like zinnias
Hydrangeas are blooming
Encore were trimmed over the fall and they have been blooming.
The one thing I vowed not forget is rye seed. It makes it feel as though winter never comes so we broadcasted the seed.
But the old grass is still....looking good..but I like the color of rye better..
I believe knockouts
I think summer snow
I want to say this
The knockouts have grown huge again
It is weird to see spring blooming camellias bloom in the fall...

And she likes to dig holes
