This morning, the paper was all about labor day and back to school. How did we get here SO fast???
Things are starting to wind down a bit...we just have one big project left, roofing and painting the shop, and the nurseries are starting to empty out for the fall. Time to make plans for what to do during the rainy season and order wish books for next spring......
The clearance bin at lowes this week had a couple of good things...two nice agastache for the back garden, and a huchera that needed some love. They'll all be fine by next spring.....that's the fun of the clearance bin.
We also got a nice little dwarf plum tree from lowes that we'll be planting today, and the fall bulbs are starting to arrive in stores. I already have 100 daffodils and crocus in the garage, waiting for a bit of a cool off to be planted........
Blooming in the garden this week,
a beautiful black daylily
a wonderful smelling Asiatic lilly that I bought on clearance
and a super hot pink coneflower (also from the clearance bin).
I've never done all that well with coneflowers, so I'm hoping that they come back next year.
Today, I'm out to take pictures of the flower beds, so that next spring, I'll know what's coming up.
This week, there's a clearance sale at a local nursery.....going to check it out!
